Manny Pacquiao, The Lawmaker

June 29, 2010

Manny Pacquiao knows his realpolitik.

While he went all out to support Manny Villar in the recent elections, the boxing great and Sarangani congressman has moved over to the Liberal Party and vowed to wholeheartedly support the Noynoy Aquino administration.

This is one gentleman he knows his politics probably even better than his pugilistic smarts.

I won’t be surprised if the Pacman will win even more titles in the halls of Congress than atop the square ring given his new-found focus on learning how to maneuver the legislative waters and setting his vision for sports development and in serving his constituents in Sarangani.

Manny Pacquiao’s folksiness, his religiosity and genuine concern for the poor are qualities that many other politicos simply don as costumes.
