MANNY PACQUIAO – The presidential aspirant and incumbent Senator spoke on his wife, Jinkee Pacquiao, if he wins president in the Election 2022.
In the Election 2022, there is a total of 97 presidential aspirants according to the Commission on Elections (Comelec). Some of those who filed their Certificates of Candidacy (COCs) for president are incumbent government officials. One of them is Sen. Manny Pacquiao.
Pacquiao is one of those eyed as a possible presidential candidate in 2022 but he has not confirmed it until the filing of candidacy drew near. He has yet to identify his running-mate in the upcoming election.
It is no secret to the public that Pacquiao is one of the richest senators in the Philippines – the 2nd wealthiest senator based on the 2020 Statements of Assets and Liabilities (SALN). Most of his wealth is from boxing.
The Pacquiao family owns several properties across the globe. They also got properties abroad and some businesses in the country.
Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, during the weekly membership meeting of the Rotary Club of Manila, Sen. Manny Pacquiao was asked if his wife, Jinkee Pacquiao, will follow former First Lady Imelda Marcos who maintained a lavish lifestyle during the term of her late husband.
According to the Senator, he knows his wife and he knows that she will not indulge in it. He stressed that his wife has served as vice governor of Sarangani but it was just for a year because she is really not into politics. He further said that what his wife wants is to help women, give out scholarships and housing for families, and do charity work.
Based on the report, Sen. Manny Pacquiao said that his wife, Jinkee, will stay away from politics if he wins president in 2022. He is determined to pursue his presidential bid amid suggestions to slide down to vice president.
