    Pacquiao to run for president in 2022 elections

    MANILA, Philippines – Senator Manny Pacquiao formally announced on Sunday his plan to run for president in the May 2022 elections.

    During the faction's 11th National Assembly, the boxing champ was declared standard-bearer of the Partido Demokratiko Pilipino (PDP) –Lakas ng Bayan.

    "I am a fighter and I will always be a fighter inside and outside the ring," Pacquiao expressed after accepting nominations from PDP-Laban chapter leaders.

    "Sa buong buhay ko, wala akong laban na inaatrasan dahil sa ngalan ng prinsipyo, karangalan ng bayan ay tumayo ako, nanindigan at nakikipaglaban," he said.

    "Ang Manny Pacquiao na nasa harap ninyo ngayon ay pinanday ng hirap... Ang Manny Pacquiao na pilit nilang pinababagsak ay ilang beses nang bumangon, nagsikap at nagtagumpay... Alam ko ang hirap na naranasan ninyo at alam kong pagod na pagod na kayong lahat," he added.

    The decision came nearly two weeks after the PDP-Laban wing headed by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi named Senator Bong Go and President Rodrigo Duterte as their group’s presidential and vice-presidential bets, respectively.

    “Exciting ito dahil malaki ang posibilidad na mananalo tayo sa darating na halalan at ang tunay na PDP-Laban ang magpapatakbo ng ating gobyerno,” Senator Koko Pimentel said at the start of the event.
