Television host Willie Revillame addressed the rumors that he’s planning to take part in the 2022 Presidential elections. There have been Wowowin viewers trying to convince him to try and run for the presidency.
People were pushing for a Tulfo-Revillame tandem as both Willie and Raffy Tulfo seem to be more favored by the masses.
So what can he say about it?
He strongly stated that it never crossed his mind. “Hindi ko naiisip ‘yan. Nag-e-enjoy ako sa buhay ko at sa show ko,” Willie said.
It was not the first time that the host encountered rumors of him planning to run for a position in the government.
In 2018, there were rumors that he would be running for Quezon City Mayor in the elections the following year, but it was proven false as he remained as the host of Wowowin.
