Luis Manzano fed the curiosity of his fans by answering questions regarding rumors that he has intentions of entering the world of Philippine politics in 2022.
On his facebook live on May 19, he read a comment asking if he will be running for a position in the government next year.
The actor stated that he has no plans to be in politics so far but he’s not totally against the idea of it as no one knows what will happen in the future.
“Wala pa! Pero malay natin, nakikita ko baka naman nasa horizon ang pagiging isang pulitiko dahil naniniwala nga akong lahat tayo meron tayong obligation o responsibility to serve, we have different capacities.”
He added that he will find ways to help others in simple acts or through public service.
“Puwedeng from a simple act of service or puwedeng through public service talaga. Para sa akin, hindi ko isinasara ang pinto ko sa pulitika.”
Luis threw a question back to his viewers, asking them if they would vote for him if ever he decides to run for a position in the government.
“Pero ang tanong, ito ang pinakamagandang tanong: kung sakali bang tumakbo ako, iboboto niyo ba ako? May tiwala ba kayo sa akin pagdating sa boto ninyo? Yun ang pinakamagandang katanungan.”
He also thanked his fans for trusting and encouraging him to enter politics.
“Thank you very much, so far maraming nagtitiwala naman sa akin pagdating sa public service.”
The actor asked his viewers once again if they’d be interested in supporting him as the filing of the candidacy is still a few months away and he can participate if he wants to.
“Ang filing ng candidacy is October, kung hindi ako nagkakamali. October, puwedeng-puwede pang humabol kung sakali man. Tingnan natin kung tatakbo ako. Tingnan natin kung anong posisyon.”
Luis is the son of veteran actress and Batangas Governor Vilma Santos-Recto.
