    Borgy Manotoc to run for mayor of Manila


    Former First Lady Imelda Marcos has given up her candidacy for mayor in Manila to give way to her grandson, Borgy Manotoc, Ilocos Norte Rep. Imee Marcos said Monday.

    The congresswoman said that she convinced her mother to make way for Manotoc since he can serve the people of Manila better.

    "My Mom figured that since she wasn't getting any younger that it should be Borgy who runs and she be the campaign manager," Marcos told ABS-CBN.

    "Borgy is a better politician than I am when it comes to dealing with people. I have no doubt he can handle the pressures of politics on his own. He's mature enough," she added.

    Marcos said her 20-year-old son, who is also a model by profession, would get votes from young people, especially those in the depressed areas of Tondo, Manila. "Borgy is not just a Marcos. He's a Manotoc and the Manotocs are from Gagalangin, Tondo," she added.

    At least six candidates have reportedly aired plans to run for the mayoral seat next year including Vice-Mayor Danny Lacuña, Ali Atienza, former Manila Rep. Mark Jimenez, Rep. Joey Hizon of the fifth district of Manila, and Senators Alfredo Lim and Panfilo Lacson.

    what's wrong with Borgy? is it because he's related to the marcoses that he will not be a good mayor? good thing Imelda is not running anymore!!! c'mon a lot of politicians have emerged not related to marcos or aquino or ramos or arroyo, etc. and yet they are still worse tsk tsk tsk!

    Paano ka ba nagha-hire ng empleyado sa kumpanya? Ganyan din yan. The problem with certain voters is that they don't know how to set QUALIFICATIONS for the job opening. And when they band together and become the majority, you will end up with people like JINGGOY ESTRADA at the Senate.

    My gulay... he doesn't even have a shred of work experience outside of showbiz.

    I would have appreciated if he ran as a councilor first and rising up the ranks.

    If he ever wins the said election - guess who'll be breathing down his neck and dictating from "experience" on what to do.

    Go Mayor Fred Lim! :jump:
