Pinoy boxing champ Manny Pacquiao has announced his intention to run for senator in the 2016 national elections.

The athlete-politician made the announcement at his last State of the District Address in Sarangani province earlier today, October 5.

However, according to ABS-CBN News, the 36-year-old congressman did not say under which political party he would be running.

“Yes, I'm going to run for [a] Senate post this coming 2016 election. But as to which party, that's still to be determined,” says Manny.

The Pambansang Kamao is currently under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) party, which is headed by 2016 presidential candidate Jejomar Binay.

But according to earlier reports, the Liberal Party is open to include Manny to their senatorial lineup should he aim for a senatorial post in 2016.

Manny's second term as Sarangani representative will end in 2016.
