Pinangalanan na ng Megastar na si Sharon Cuneta ang susuportahan at iboboto niya sa pagka-bise presidente sa darating na May 9 elections.
Ito ay walang iba kundi si Liberal Party vice-presidential bet Leni Robredo.
Si Leni ay kasalukuyang kongresista sa third district ng Camarines Sur at biyuda ng namayapang Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) secretary na si Jesse Robredo.
Pahayag ni Sharon, “I didn’t endorse… you know, I have friends running sabay, e, for the presidency.
“I have a couple of friends running for vice president.
“But my vice president, I have decided, is Leni Robredo because I’ve known Leni before she became congresswoman pa.
“I think Sec. Jesse, her late husband, ano siya, e, parang… tawag ko sa kanila, parang Jedi masters.
“Konti na lang, tapos namatay pa si Sec. Jesse.
“Kasi they say na when you enter politics, imposibleng hindi madumihan ang kamay mo.
“But I don’t believe that, kasi there are people like Sec. Jesse and somebody I happen to marry [Kiko Pangilinan], who are really good people and honest.
“Who never stole, who worked hard for what they have now.
“So, si Leni for me embodies pa rin all of that what Sec. Jesse embody before.”
Dagdag pa ni Sharon, kahit sinasabi na sobrang mahinhin at hindi makabasag-pinggan ang mambabatas, may itinatago raw itong galing at talino.
Sabi ng 50-year-old Kapamilya star, “And do not be fooled by her pagka-grandiosa, she’s a smart lady.
“She knows what’s good for the country. She’s honest, she is upright, people respect her.
“She’s lovely, she’s a lovely person.
“So, she’s my VP.
“And, of course, I endorse my husband. And there’s my daddy, my uncle Tito [Sotto], period.”
Hindi naman nagbigay ng pangalan si Sharon kung sino ang iboboto niya sa pagka-presidente.
Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at iba pang press si Sharon sa welcome presscon nito bilang bagong coach ng The Voice Kids, ngayong Huwebes, May 4.
Ginanap ang presscon sa 13th floor ng ELJ building ng ABS-CBN compound sa Quezon City, pagkatapos niyang pumirma ng two-year exclusive at guaranteed contract sa Kapamilya network kaninang tanghali rin.
SCARY TIME.” Apat na araw na lang ay halalan na, ano ang maipapayo ni Sharon sa lahat ng mga botante?
Saad ng Megastar, “This is what I’ve been telling everybody, I think the barometer should be when you choose your president, especially when you believe in God, if you believe in a God that wants the best for you but has also given you a free will to choose what you want to do.
“I think, the person you should choose to be president is who you think God would pick to lead the country.
“I mean, even there’s nobody that’s perfect, none of the presidentiables are, I’m sure like all of us, di ba, wala namang perpektong tao sa mundo.
“Pero dapat ang barometer mo ay yung gusto ng Panginoon na mag-lead ng country.
“Kasi, remember, it’s another six years.
“It’s a scary time, it’s a scary time. So, just choose well and go with your heart.
“Make sure your heart is in the right place.
“That’s all I can say, kasi we have to respect other people’s decisions.
“But ako, ang hirap ano, it’s so hard.
“Let us just pray that we all pick the right president to run this country because we really need it.
“We need a good man to run this country.”
