- Kapuso host Willie Revillame responded to speculations that he will run in the 2019 elections
- He said he is still thinking about it but a lot of people convince him to enter politics
- Rumors say that the TV host will be running as Quezon City Mayor in 2019
Wowowin host Willie Revillame answered the rumors that he will pursue a position in the 2019 mid-term elections.
KAMI learned that the influential TV host is still undecided if he will grab the opportunity to enter into the world of politics.
“I admit that people from different political parties have been inviting me… Kung sinu-sino ang kumakausap sa akin,” he said.
Despite being told by other people that he will surely win in the election, the 57-year-old celebrity still thinks hard about it since he said being a public servant is not an easy job.
“As of now, I haven’t made any decision yet. Pinag-aaralan ko pa ang sitwasyon,” Willie admitted.
The speculation became stronger when Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte conducted a meeting with Willie at the Quezon City Hall on July 30.
“Nung nag-usap kami, she just asked me about my plan, lokal ba o national. And I told her that I had no plans yet, that I am still thinking hard about it,” he shared.
According to rumors, Willie will possibly run for the Mayoral position in Quezon City against incumbent Vice Mayor Joy Belmonte.
The TV host revealed that his show, Wowowin, is one of the factors that are stopping him from running in the 2019 elections.
He said he already helped a lot of people through the show and he just renewed a one-year contract with GMA-7.
In a previous article by KAMI, Willie offered help to an A+ dialysis patient whom he met as a contestant in one of the segments of Wowowin.
Aside from being a host, Willie is a singer, songwriter, businessman, actor, and a comedian. He starred in several films including Pera o Bayong (2000), Matalino man ang Matsing Na-iisahan Din (2000), and Sa kamay ng batas (1995).
