Manny Pacquiao Running For President In 2022

MANNY PACQUIAO RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT – Boxing promoter Bob Arum said that Senator Manny Pacquiao will run for president in 2022.

In the previous years, there have been talks about Pacquiao running for the presidency. However, every time the conversation comes up, Pacquiao had always denied these claims.

But, according to an article from Esquire, Arum said he was in a Zoom conference with Pacquiao. According to an article from Esquire, Pacquiao told Arum:

Bob, I’m gonna run in 2022 and, when I win, I want you there at my inauguration

Pacquiao running for the presidency has been a heavily debated topic throughout the years. Ever since he was elected as a senator, Pacquiao faced criticisms due to his lack of knowledge in policymaking.

Knowing this, Pacquiao began to take a course in political science at the University of Makati. There, he took classes specializing in local government administration and received his degree last year.

With his new degree, Netizens reacted positively to Pacquiao’s milestone. However, there are still those who question how he got to study with his tight schedule as a boxer and Senator.

Also, back in 2017, President Rodrigo Duterte during Pacquiao’s birthday celebration quipped that the fighting senator would be next in line for the presidency.

The determination you have shown and the humility embodied in the glorious triumph are worthy of emulation. Continue to inspire as we lead them towards a more prosperous life

However, in 2019, Duterte told Pacquiao to think things through if ever he wanted to run in the 2022 elections. But, as per the article, Pacquiao had yet to give his comments on Bob Arum’s statement.
