Iginiit na ‘good choice’ si Senator Manny Pacquiao para sa presidential bet ng Partido Demokratiko Pilipino-Lakas ng Bayan (PDP-Laban) party, ayon kay Senator Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.
“I think he will be a good choice of the party to push for president but of course, running should be voluntary, the person should be willing to run for that particular position,” lahad ni Pimentel sa panayam.
“It seems that he has been preparing for this possibility. He has many ideas and he has been explaining his ideas, the program of the government, his platform.”
Maaalalang maugong ang pangalan ni Pacquiao sa pagkapresidente sa darating na eleksyon ngunit wala pang pinal na desisyon.
“They are consulting with him, telling him their problems, sharing with him, dialoguing with him so this is what we need. This is the leader that we need. The president that we need, number one, who has the plan for the country, who has the right heart.”
“It is time to look at the heart. Look at the heart, the heart is in the right place with the right motivation, with the right feelings and emotions,” lahad pa nito.
“That is why if you look at senatorial surveys, he’s topping it.”
