Dingdong Dantes On Rumors That He Will Run As Senator In The 2016 Elections

DINGDONG DANTES admits his name was included in a list of possible senatorial candidates of the Liberal Party for next year’s elections. “I’m honored to be part of their initial choices,” he says. “Sino ba naman ako para mailagay doon, di ba? But I already have made the final decision na wala talaga akong planong tumakbo in any elected post. Kasi, bukod sa shows ko sa GMA, ‘Pari ‘Koy’, I’m also hosting soon ang new season of ‘Starstruck’. I do naman my own acts of service by helping the youth through the National Youth Commission. Then I’m also busy pa taking care of Marian and our soon to be baby. So, wala talaga sa plano ang pumasok sa politics dahil there are a lot of other things for me to do.”

As of now, he’s just happy that “Pari ‘Koy” is gaining more and more viewers with its positive story of hope and inspiration. In the flashback scenes, it is shown how his past love story with Carla Abellana as Michelle developed and how it was aborted when he returned from Manila and Carla is already missing. David Remo as the orphan Pinggoy is saved by Carla from an accident and he thinks that Carla is Mama Mary because she has a blue shawl that she uses as a veil. It becomes slowly clear that Pinggoy can be the missing son of Carla and Fr. Kokoy himself is the father, not knowing he has sired a child with his past girlfriend.

Meantime, the love story between Jeric Gonzalez as Eli and Lindsay de Vera as Ava continues to develop, much to the consternation and resistence of Lindsay’s over protective Lola Martha played by Chanda Romero. Lin
