In a recent interview, based on the article by Manila Bulletin entertainment writer Robert Requintina, the actor-politician said that he will end his political career after his term in 2025. “Hindi ha. Ayoko na n’yan. Ayoko ng sakit ng ulo. Sa kanila na yan,” he said when asked if he is planning to run for a higher position next elections.
He added that he will just support others. The Kapuso star said that he will just help to whoever needed help. “Yung lahat ng naging sakop ko bilang senador, tulad ng laban sa droga, yan gagawin natin para maproteksyunan natin ang mga kabataan,” Bong said.
The actor-politician also said that he has been through a lot. He was most loved and then he became the most hated. Bong said that he just wants to spend his remaining days to make people happy.
