Boxing champ Manny Pacquiao for “congressman”?

World boxing champion Manny Pacquiao showed confidence  that he was about to win a new title as congressman in the Philippine House of Representatives.

Preliminary results from Monday’s ballot with over 80 percent of votes counted showed Pacquiao delivering a knockout punch, winning double the number of votes for his rival in a seat representing the southern province of Sarangani.

We all know that Manny is a pro when it comes to boxing, but there are questions regarding on his credibility as a congressman. Many questions and many intrigues are showing if he can really do his job if ever he will be announced as the new Sarangani congressman.

“I am excited about serving my fellow Filipinos. This has long been my dream,” Pacquiao was quoted as saying by the broadcaster ABS-CBN’s website.

I believe that we are all capable of serving our country. Even if you’re just a high school gradute and it’s in your will to help those who are in need, then just go do your thing. Just like Manny, if helping and serving his fellow Filipinos is what he likes, then why not give him a chance.
