Manny Pacquiao’s Running For Congress In Sarangani On 2010 Elections

Manny Pacquiao’s political party, People’s Champ Movement formally filed a petition to the Commission on Elections (Comelec) for their recognition of the poll body last May 4. Manny actually expressed his decision to run as a Congressman for the Sarangani province.

Manny Pacquiao\'s Running For Congress In Sarangani On 2010 Elections

Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was introduced by Michael Buffer on his last 2-round KO fight against Ricky Hatton, as “the man of Sarangani, Philippines.” Many fans and friends have somehow wondered then why Sarangani, when Pacquiao has always been introduced as from his root province, General Santos City.

Pacquiao already ran last 2007 also for Congress in General Santos City, but eventually lost to Darlene Antonio-Custodio by around 37,000 votes. However, last December 2007 after his win from “The Dream Match” against Oscar Dela Hoya, he actually announced his intentions of getting into politics again by 2010 as a hopeful Congressman of Sarangani.

Back then, many fans expressed delight when he lost the 2007 elections in General Santos City because of much expectation from our Pambansang Kamao, wanting Pacquiao to still fight on the ring. Even the Commission on Election chairman, Rene Sarmiento somehow don’t approve because Pacquiao right now does not just hold the No.1 Pound-for-Pound title but represents as an icon of unity among the Filipinos.

In someway, Manny Pacquiao into politics may instill something ‘divisive’ or tarnish the unifying effect he is resembling to our nation. But, who knows what the man can do and what he can’t do? Not unless, he’ll just let some strings pull him with his every move. Then, not so fast… Manny boy. 😉

Ara Mina’s Getting Ready For 2010 Elections

If nothing’s gonna ever go wrong, Ara Mina is at most 70% sure of running for Quezon City’s 2nd District councilor. Politics run in her blood somehow, not to mention she’s the daughter of Mhel Mathay.

At the moment, Ara Mina’s camp is considering which political party and who’s the Mayor they’ll be going to run with. She said it would be hard to pull it all together running independently.

Ara Mina\'s Getting Ready For 2010 Elections

Back with GMA7, Ara Mina is also doing a villain role of the remake of Sharon Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion’s hit movie ‘Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin?’ Kris Bernal and Aljur Abrenica will play the lead roles.

Ara’s quite comfortable and positive about this project. Though about the 2010 elections, the 30% she’s hoping not to happen may or may not matter at all… if intentions are good and noble, why worry for 30% technicalities? Cheers to you Ara! 😉
