MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila. Bureau) – In 2013, film actor Aga Muhlach ran for the elective post of Representative for the Fourth District of Camarines Sur. He ran under the Liberal Party, and affiliated himself with the Robredos.
We all now have seen the viral video in which Muhlach, responding to a question by TV show host Vice Ganda, took to task Senator Antonio Trillanes and other Opposition politicians for always criticizing President Duterte while doing nothing to help.
The video elicited angry reactions from Opposition politicians and supporters who have called for a boycott of Muhlach’s latest movie, “First Love.”
But Liberal Party leaders, led by Mar Roxas and Leni Robredo, are doing more than just slapping Muhlach on the wrist. They want to declare the actor ‘persona non grata.’
‘Muhlach embarrassed the LP with his comments and put the party at high risk of losing supporters — and votes in the coming midterm elections —especially among Aga’s fans and millennials,” Roxas said.
Robredo, who is currently abroad, is reportedly considering ousting Muhlach from LP.
