MANILA, Philippines — Manny Pacquiao, who rose to world fame with a phenomenal boxing career before somewhat fading in a lackluster political career, has thrown his hat in the presidential arena

Using classic underdog rhetoric, Pacquiao said: “It’s time for the downtrodden to win. It’s time for our nation to rise up from poverty. It’s time for us to have a clean government where every centavo will go to every Filipino.”“We are fed up with promises of change. Our people ask when their hardship will end. The time is now. We are ready to rise to the challenge of leadership,” he said.

Pacquiao was the second politician to declare his presidential bid after Sen. Panfilo Lacson more than a week ago.The national assembly of his faction authorized him to choose his running mate.Last month, Duterte’s faction of the party selected his longtime aide, Sen. Bong Go, as its standard-bearer and President Duterte as his running mate. But Go has so far refused to accept this nomination.

Both factions have petitioned the Commission on Elections to decide their respective claims to be the true party.Pimentel said his group was ready to slug it out with the faction aligned with Duterte and led by his energy secretary, Alfonso Cusi.ADVERTISEMENT headtopics.com

“We will fight back against the hijackers. Ignoring them but resisting them, we will fight,” said the inheritor of the party that once fought the Marcos dictatorship.Pimentel, the son of the late senator and PDP founder Aquilino Pimentel Jr., said: “If we compare PDP-Laban to a car, some boarded our car and are now trying to force us out. It seems they liked our car. Or maybe they are car collectors. They have so many cars, which means they are so selfish. We will not allow them to hijack our party.”

“We have only one party. Those on the other side kept jumping parties. If convenient for them, they will join, if no longer convenient, they will destroy,” he said in Filipino.“Today we will happily elect our officers, under the dynamic, courageous, bold leadership of our party president, Manny Pacquiao,” Pimentel said, eliciting cheers at the assembly. “This is exciting because there’s a good chance we will win.”

“The true PDP-Laban will be running our government” when the elections are over, he added.Spotty attendance recordAcknowledged as one of the greatest boxers of all time and the only eight-division world champion, Pacquiao has captured the imagination of his countrymen and the world in a spectacular career running for more than two decades.

That record has not always been an advantage in politics. He lost his first congressional bid in South Cotabato province in 2007, but ran again three years later, this time winning two consecutive terms in Sarangani province.Thereafter Pacquiao joined the senatorial race, making it to the Magic 12 in the 2016 elections. headtopics.com

Yet he kept fighting high-profile matches throughout his political career, resulting in a spotty attendance record.He was among the top absentees in the House of Representatives, showing up for work only four days for the entirety of 2014.Pacquiao maintained this attendance record in his early years in the Senate. But he began to register perfect attendance as the chamber shifted to online sessions amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

TurncoatThe Bible-quoting Pacquiao counts as his major legislative accomplishments the passage of the Handbook for Overseas Filipino Workers Act of 2018 and the National Bible Day Act. In the House, he passed seven laws, and in the Senate, he authored 12 measures that became law and coauthored six others.

In 2019, he declared a net worth of P3.17 billion, making him the second wealthiest senator after Sen. Cynthia Villar.The Pacman has been a turncoat several times — from the Liberal Party to the PDP-Laban within three years of his first term in the House, then moving on to the United Nationalist Alliance in 2016 only to revert to the PDP-Laban after Duterte won as president that year.

He was seen as an early enabler of Duterte’s agenda, even leading the Senate in stripping a colleague, Leila de Lima, of her chairmanship of the committee on justice and human rights.But with a potential change of the guard in the coming general elections, Pacquiao has become a vocal critic of Duterte and as a result has risked his standing in the ruling party and in the political scene at large. headtopics.com

Resign for being a senator... LetLeniLead Same Duterte promise without the 3-6 months. Pilipino, paloloko ka uli?

Sino ba nang api syo? Sumbong naten sa principal! Lol None of the Government officials has a clear motive. Wag tayong magsasalita ng tapos. Sa lahat ng bansa di mawawalan ng corruption. Tandaan niyo yan! dahil lahat nasisilaw sa pera AngKatotohanan Interesting… MostAbsent Ngayon na kailangan mo ng boto asta mo INAAPI ka? YOUR MOUTH IS WRITING CHECKS YOUR ASS CAN’T CASH !!!

Tama na. H'wag muling magpauto. Senator Paquiao you are too ambitious. Being a President is not easy and we filipinos need someone who is competent. Mag donate na lang po kayo sa mahihirap kung yun po ang gusto ninyong gawin. Pwede naman po yun kahit di ka presidente. Peace✌🏼

Same old rhetoric, nothing new. You dont need to be the President to help others. Di ka nga pumapasok sa Senado tapos tatakbo kang Presidente? Anong gagawin mo sa malacañang? Magbo-boxing? Good luck! Ay! Luma ng linya yan! Pag nasa palasyo na talo pa rin ang mga api. Boksing ka na lang give mo premyo sa mga api yun sigurado!

Let me remind to my brother&sister in the LGBTQ community.. Na tayo ay inihalintulad na mas masahol pa at mababa pa sa hayop.. Wag mag pagamit sa taong ito na ginagamit pa ang BIBLIYA. Wag kayo magpalinlang... Bumenta ito noon, kaso panis na ngayon. Tito, real life to ha, hindi movie. K po? K.
