Cynthia Villar is the richest senator in the Philippines. She’s the wife of the wealthiest Filipino Manny Villar. In a previous article, Cynthia said political candidates do not need any money to win in any elections.  

“You know, kapag winning candidate ka, kahit mahirap ka maraming magbibigay sa ‘yo ng pera. Kapag losing candidate ka, kahit mayaman ka hindi ka mananalo. That’s the reality of PH politics. Huwag ninyong sabihing nasa pera ‘yan,” said Villar.

“Wag nyong iaasa sa farmers at fisherfolk kasi sila hindi naman nila naiintindihan yang climate change. Wag nyo nang sasabihing climate change yan,” Villar said.
