Manny Pacquiao has this reaction when asked about running for president
Senator Manny Pacquiao, who is known as Pacman in the world of boxing, has this reaction when asked about running for president next election.
After reigning over different boxing categories, Manny ventured also into politics. This is aside from the fact that he also played basketball, as well as doing some acting and singing stints until now.
His political career did not soar high at the beginning. In 2007, he decided to run against then-incumbent Congresswoman Darlene Antonino Custodio but the boxing champ failed to win the position of South Cotabato 1st District Representative.
Three years after that, he aimed the congressional seat once again but this time it was in Saranggani, the hometown of his wife Jinkee Pacquiao, and he won. In 2016, he ran for senator and also won.
Any plans for the presidency?
Based on the article from Pilipino Star Ngayon, Arnold Vegafria, the business manager of Manny Pacquiao revealed that there are many people who are convincing the boxer/politician to run for president. However, Pacman has no final decision yet regarding this matter in his political career.
“Hindi niya pa iniisip ‘yun. Well, maraming nag-e-encourage. Pero ang lagi niyang sinasabi, ‘in God’s will,” Pacman’s business manager shared. Vegafria added that Manny also received several movie offers abroad, based on the article.
“May mga offer from other countries, dami eh, iba-iba. May Hollywood, may Hong Kong, may China, marami eh,” he said. According to Vegafria, most of the offers are for action films, however, the boxing champ is more focus now in his job as a public servant.
