It’s almost official Manny Pacquiao is running for Congress in the upcoming 2010 elections. Manny will be running for the lone congressional district of Saranggani. The world’s 6th richest athlete will be going against a member of the Chiongbian family.
When asked why Manny Pacquiao is running for congress (again) the People’s Champ said how he has been dissatisfied with the performance of the Chiongbians in Saranggani.
“Kung satisfied ako siguro sa ginagawa nila ‘di na ako tatakbo dahil masaya ako. Susuportahan ko na lang sila,” said Pacquiao.
“Nakita ko naman na kulang talaga. In how many years, wala silang naitulong sa mga tao,” he added.
Manny Pacquiao ran for a congressional seat in 2007 in the first district of South Cotabato as an adopted member of Kampi, the political party of President Gloria Arroyo. However, he was knocked out by re-electionist Darlene Antonino-Custodio, who handily beat the boxing champ with a margin of more than 60,000 votes.
So what do you think? Should Manny Pacquiao run for congress or not? Personally I believe Manny Pacquiao serves his country best in the ring.
