Confirmed! Senator Ping Lacson confirms Senator Manny Pacquiao’s presidential ambition

Senator Panfilo “Ping” Lacson confirmed the long-rumored presidential ambition of fellow senator, Sen. Manny Pacquiao.

In an interview with Karen Davila on her program, Headstart, on Friday morning, Lacson revealed that Sen. Manny approached him two or three times last year to seek his advice on the possibility of the boxing champ running for president.

“Sinabi naman niya and he’s quite open about it. Although ayaw niyang pag-usapan because of COVID,” Sen. Lacson said.

The senator, however, said that in fairness to the boxing champ-turned senator, he is consistent on his position that they should all deal with COVID first instead of politics.

In a video recently posted by Pacquiao, he said that becoming president is destiny granted by God.

“Marami nang nangarap, marami na rin nabigo, ngunit ang hangad ko sa susunod na Presidente ay may tunay na malasakit at tunay na pagmamahal sa mamamayang Pilipino,” Sen. Pacquiao said.

Sen. Lacson and Sen. Pacquiao are seatmates on the Philippine Senate floor. It is normal for seatmates to talk not only about laws they craft, but also about political plans for the future.

As of writing, Senator Pacquiao still has not denied the claims made by Sen. Lacson earlier in his interview on Headstart.
