Philippines: president manny pacquiao

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Manny Pacquiao is known the world over as the Filipino champion boxer. A few know him as a sitting Philippine Senator.

Of the many names being floated to succeed President Rodrigo Duterte when he steps down in 2022, Pacquiao’s is among the more intriguing. We’ve had movie actors as Presidents before, among them Ronald Reagan and Joseph Estrada. But a boxer?

Well, like it or not, we can now call Manny President Pacquiao.

He has just been chosen the President of Duterte’s political party, PDP-LABAN. Whether he will run for (and win as) President of the Philippines remains to be seen.
