Ara Mina takes to Instagram to explain why she decided not to run in 2019 elections. "For now, God wants me to be an obedient daughter, taking one step at a time," she says.


Nagdesisyon si Ara Mina na huwag nang ituloy ang plano niyang tumakbo sa 2019 mid-term elections. 

Isang araw bago ang deadline ng pagpa-file ng certificate of candidacy (COC) ng mga nais tumakbo sa halalan sa 2019, sinabi ni Ara na hindi pa siya nakakapagdesisyon kung tatakbo siya o hindi.

Lumipas ang deadline ng pagpa-file ng COC noong Miyerkules, October 17, pero hindi nagsumite ang 39-anyos na aktres.

Sa kanyang Instagram account nitong Huwebes, October 18, nagpaliwanag si Ara kung bakit hindi niya itinuloy ang planong pagtakbo.

Nasa dugo raw niya ang pulitika, pero kinailangan daw niyang ikunsidera ang mga oportunidad sa karera at negosyo.

Si Ara ay anak ni Chuck Mathay, dating congressman ng Quezon City at tatakbo bilang mayor ng nasabing lungsod sa 2019.

Ang ama ni Chuck ay ang dating mayor ng QC na si Mel Mathay Jr.

Saad ni Ara, “I’m proud to be part of the Mathay family.

"We share this sincerity to help people. We are public servants by heart.

“But as for me, I need to make decisions in accordance to God’s faith and guidance because of the many opportunities and blessings coming my way now, both in career and business."

Sabi pa ng aktres, pinag-isipan niyang maigi kung tatakbo siya o hindi.

“I prayed and asked for God’s sign to guide me in making this very important decision....

“For now, God wants me to be an obedient daughter, taking one step at a time.

“I gave it a lot of thought and considered many things and although I really desire to be a public servant, I have decided not to run this coming election.”

Ang pagtulong daw ngayon sa pangangampanya sa kanyang ama at kapatid, na kasalukuyang councilor sa Quezon City, ang gagawin niya.

“Sa ngayon, I will just focus on helping my DAD CHUCK because he is running for MAYOR in Q.C. and my brother CRIS in continuing his mission as a councilor in San Juan.... while I continue to be engaged in helping people and doing charities, since this has been a very meaningful part of my life over the years.”
