 Manny the Pac-Man Pacquiao, boxer extraordinaire is an icon.  People are drawn to watch him fight from countries around the world. In whatever city his gloves are laced, the populace is sure to follow. 

Rumors floated about of his running for President of the Philippines because reporters continually pressed him on the issue and so when asked again if he had thought about shooting for the top job, Manny softly replied, “Yes”.

 However, he could not run in the 2016 elections because he will be too young. Manny is only 34 years old

now so he will still be under the 40 year mark, required by their constitution.

Manny Pacquiao is not only a terrific fighter.  Manny is also a congressman from the province of, Sarangani, on the large island of Mindanao.   

Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. advised Manny to run for senator before aspiring to the top post.  “Let’s train (for the presidency) at the senatorial level.” 

That is maybe where the info is gathered to be a corrupt politician, who will grease your palm or where and for how much.  The politicos of the Philippines learn deceit and how to cunningly lie somewhere…don’t corrupt his well-intentioned mind.

 Anyway, Pacquiao quelled the rumors that began flying wildly two days ago on the 29th.  He clarified his intentions and stated that he has no immediate or concrete plans to pursue the presidency in 2016.  The Philippine Presidency however, is a grand aspiration.
