Actress and philanthropist Angel Locsin reacts to netizens’ observation that there are more celebrities from the show running for public office in the upcoming election than in previous years.
“I’m not here to judge them because these people really have the skills to help the Filipino people. We shouldn’t beat each other down because we’re from the same industry, “he begins.” As it stands, people think so little of us because we’re actors. “
“If these people believe they can really help other Filipinos, then move on. If I would personally vote for them, I don’t know yet, “says the actress.” Maybe they agreed to run because they received offers. It is also possible that people will approach them with a promise not to worry about campaign expenses, which I also think other politicians have invited show business celebrities to run because they need well-known personalities in their political parties. “
Angel further adds: “Personally, I don’t see myself as a politician. We all have strengths, and this isn’t one of mine. I don’t know how to create laws and policies. I’m used to acting, but of a different kind. “
