Bam Aquino failed to make it to the top 12 of the recent Senatorial race in the Philippines.
KAMI learned that Aquino addressed his defeat on social media.
The former senator expressed his optimism for the country’s future despite his loss.
“Hindi man tayo pinalad na makakuha ng pangalawang termino, hindi mauubos ang pagmamahal ko sa ating mga kababayan at kagustuhang manilbihan sa kapwa, bagkus sa ibang larangan naman.
“Napakalaking karangalan ang manilbihan sa taumbayan kaya’t lubus-lubos ang pasasalamat ko sa mga nakatrabaho at sumuporta sa akin sa loob ng anim na taon at sa mga walang pagod na nangampanya nitong nakaraang mga buwan.
“Bago pa man ang araw ng eleksyon, ipinaubaya ko na sa Diyos ang resulta. At buo pa rin ang tiwala ko sa Kanyang plano para sa akin at higit sa lahat, para sa ating Bayan. Maraming salamat,” he wrote.
As reported earlier by KAMI, Bong Revilla Jr. was able to win a seat in the Senate.
