People are wondering why Sen. Bong Revilla announced he would run for president in 2016.
- Unfazed by the charges he’s facing, Sen. Ramon Revilla Jr. said on Saturday he would run for president in 2016 if there’s a public clamor for it.
“If we need to sail in 2016, as long as our countrymen ask for it, I’ll be up to it because I’m innocent of the charges being hurled at me,” Revilla said in an interview on radio dwIZ.
His lawyer, Joel Bodegon, said in a telephone interview that Revilla’s indictment had emboldened him to consider running for the highest office in the land in May 2016.
And if the public clamor for him to run for president “grows [louder]” and “snowballs,” Bodegon said he believed Revilla would go for it. HERE
Truth is one of his trusted advisers told him “Boss, kumandito ka para kung manalo ka pwede mong ipardon ang sarili mo.”
Naniwala naman ang gago.
