Philippine boxing legend Pacquiao punches way into Senate

Philippine boxing legend Pacquiao punches way into Senate

Sportacus
By Sportacus

Boxing hero Manny Pacquiao is virtually assured of a seat in the upper house Senate, according to election results which take him a step closer to his dream of the Philippines presidency.

Pacquiao, 37, whose rise from desperate street kid to boxing superstar has made him one of the nation's biggest heroes, retired from boxing last month to become a full-time politician.

With over 91% of voting centres accounted for from Monday's polls, the winner of an unprecedented eight world championships had garnered 14.94mn votes, more than enough to enter the Senate.

Pacquiao placed eighth out of a field of 50 candidates in a national race where the top 12 win a seat in the upper house, a powerful legislative body that has often served as a springboard to higher office.

Regarded as an icon in the impoverished nation, Pacquiao's boxing matches have regularly brought the country to a standstill.

The high school dropout has parlayed his sporting successes into a fortune from commercial endorsements, eventually moving into a political career, serving two terms as a congressman.

His foray into government was part of a long-term strategy to become president, a not unrealistic ambition given his wild popularity.

But his critics have charged that he performed poorly in Congress, barely attending sessions, and instead preferring to train for matches, bask in the celebrity limelight, and dabble in professional basketball.

Nevertheless, he campaigned actively for the Senate, touring the nation and delivering impassioned speeches recalling his tough upbringing.

“If a leader hasn’t experienced being poor, he cannot truly feel for the poor,” he said at one campaign rally.

“The children sleeping on the streets, using cardboard boxes for blankets, I know how that feels. I know how it feels to go hungry for whole day, just drinking water to survive.”

During his campaign, Pacquiao promised to help the poor, improve the lot of farmers and teachers, campaign for free education, and — in a nod to his old profession — secure funding for grassroots sports programmes.

“Sports doesn't get any budget. That’s why.... we cannot produce a single gold medal,” he said, referring to the Philippines’ long and so far fruitless quest for Olympic gold.

Answering his critics, who say he is not fit to be a senator because he has little education or track record as an effective lawmaker, Pacquiao has insisted his rags-to-riches story qualifies him for the job.

His election is part of a wave of populism in the Philippines, which saw firebrand politician Rodrigo Duterte win the presidency in a landslide Tuesday.

There is no assurance on everything. WE will never know what would happen in Duterte's presidency. Unfortunately, if we chose any other candidate for president, that, we already know. It's like trying a new dish, we've had so many dishes that's all savory and tasty at start but gives you stomach ache the day after. Now we're trying a new dish with a lot of spice. Who knows? maybe this time we find our sweet spot.

@Hamza, brother come on. If you want an argument, argue logically and still show respect. Respect their opinion if we want them to respect ours.

@zack and WT - At the very least with our discussion, i see how people from other countries view us. In politics we have nothing to be proud of, even after duterte's win nothing has been done yet so we will have to give him his 6 months. Me, my family and people around me are solid duterte BUT only because we saw better odds with him. For now, nothing to be proud in that department.

Let's put it like this: The Philippines are a beautiful country, and there are some beautiful people. But there are some dirty politicians as well. And from the view of a democrat, a simple majority to become president is populist and not a political decision!

Hamzah1234 - I can tell you are not that smart, the type who believes things so easily without the true facts. Obviously you don't know any politicians in Phils, but I do. I meet them from time to time. They have a very different view than the ones being painted for Du30 in your country. No worries, keep dreaming...thats all you can do and pray for.

By zackm• 6 years 1 week ago.

Hamzah1234 - Yes, yes keep laughing...laugh at your country...thats what the world is seeing, your politics are a joke...we will see who laugh and who cries later. Du30 already over promised to make a significant change for the country in 6 months. Are you nuts, he must a real super HERO...with super powers... it take decades for country to change. The fastest one in Asia has been South Korea and China, over the last 40 years they are now a Global Figure within Asia. Do you really think that Du30 can do that in 6 months...obviously you are deluded!

By hamzah1234• 6 years 1 week ago.

Zackm- I Don't know the politics in my own country? LOL. If you know the real politics not the one the media flashes on the television you would say that Duterte is a HERO.

So Kevin, if thats the case, who gets there proceeds of the Island Sales? Has it been declared how the money is going to be used by the current administration? How is the people of the Phils taking this, selling national land to the Chinese, so they can build airstrips for their military plane, explore shale gas and also gaining the fishing rights?

Britexpat Thank you for explaining to this people.

Wild Turkey: Yes we want to annihilate criminals in our country. you have no idea the criminals in our country. fck democracy if we live in fear. we prefer a government where all people muslims, christians and natives are equal. where criminals are floating in the sea instead of destroying our lives. only evil people see duterte as evil. to answer your question those people who didnt vote for him did not register for the elections. This guy is our caesar where 95% of the population LOVE HIM! the 5% are criminals and corrupt politicians anyways when we become number one in south east asia we still welcome you to work in our country.

And to think we voted for this guy (aquino) just because his dad was assassinated due to a Marcos' tyranny and his mom ran and won as president. To think we took our chances just because of that reason thinking he will never be a corrupt leader because of his background. But what happened, basically nothing. Killings happened, terrorism got worse, economy worse, we got more debt that we ever had.

I remember, whenever we ride a train. We can't stop thinking about it crashing or just stopping in the middle of the track. Happened multiple times. But the president claims it's well maintained.

Don't get me wrong, i am completely against Manny being a senator. But i would like to give Duterte a chance, same with the 90-95% Filipinos here in Qatar who voted for him. This is the first in a long time that it seems different, seems legit and seems very promising. Yes his attitude is a bit scary when you think about it. But for 27 years of my existence, i've heard promises after promises that never happened with the past 2 presidential elections i witnessed. You can't blame us if we think maybe choosing a president like that. We've had worse.

In the end, we may prosper or get even worse. It's the chance that we wanted to take for a change.

Brit: I said "especially in the east." I have not seen an honest political leader over the last 5 decades in my country. During their political rallies prior to elections they all talk of corruption and promise its eradication. But once in power, all is forgotten. As the saying goes in my part of the world "Why not take a sip from the flowing river" and they never want to miss the opportunity life has provided them with.

And one more thing, Kevin. I personally "rescued" a woman from Cagayan de Oro because she was beaten by her "boy-friend". I sent her the money to fly to Cebu with her two children and her Mom. Now she is relatively safe there in a house I paid and she is living on the money I send to her. But I guess I'd have to get her out of there as fast as possible.

But you guys need to wake up and choose the right politicians... if no one is available...just stand up and don't vote...why vote when there is no one good to run the country. Its a democratic country, if no one votes or having low turnout in voting, they will have to keep doing reelection on and on...how long till the corrupt ones run out of money from the campaigns and give up. then wait for the good guy to come and get elected with new campaign, with genuine votes. Thats the way and only way for your country...people fighting for their right to choose a correct leader...not a boxer, movie star...criminals...foul-mouth mayors

Duterte's comments: While referencing a 36-year-old Australian lay minister named Jacqueline Hamill, who was held hostage, raped, had her throat slashed and was shot in 1989, he said, “I was angry because she was raped, that’s one thing. But she was so beautiful, the mayor should have been first. What a waste.”

@Wild Turkey - So? We actually wouldn't mind. Most of us actually wants the death penalty back. Let me ask you a question.

Does criminals obey the rules of "Human Rights"? How about Gun Laws? How about rape? So basically, the president HAVE to obey the laws of human rights and let these people who violate other people live, kill and rape other people. And when we do catch them, put them in jail, give free food and eventually let them go again?

Is that human rights? Human rights, is flawed my friend.

Filipinos are very forgiving people. The Marcoses and Estradas who robbed them during their terms are again voted by the people.

But, with the new president, hopefully these people will either be jailed or killed. Many have strongly spoken in this election by voting the tough guy from Mindanao.
