 Broadcaster and senatorial aspirant Raffy Tulfo on Monday said the camp of Sen. Manny Pacquiao asked him to run as the lawmaker’s vice president in the 2022 elections.

“Sinabi ko na napakabilis naman ata agad yun bang paglundag, vice president agad. Sabi ko, isa pa, hindi ko puwedeng banggain si Pangulong Duterte dahil siya’y kaibigan ko. Isa pa, nandiyan si Sen. Tito Sotto, di ko rin puwedeng banggain. Pumayag naman sila,” he said.

Vice President Jejomar Binay is more than a hundred percent in support for boxing hero Sarangani Congressman Manny Pacquiao whose senatorial bid in the May election is complicated by his coming April face-off with Timothy Bradley and the Commission on Elections (Comelec) saying coverage of the fight may give Oacquiao undue publicity in violation of election rules.

We are 110% in support of Pacquiao and we are confident that his lawyers are keenly studying the issue, said Rico Quicho, spokesman of Vice President Jejomar BInay, referring to the Comelec comment about Pacquiao possibly violating election laws.

Media coverage of the Pacquiao fight may be a violation of election rules as it is another way of promoting  the boxer’s senatorial bid, Comelec Chairman Juan Andres Bautista said earlier.

Comelec has asked Pacquiao to comment on the issue about possible violation of election rules raised by  former Akbayan party-list Rep. Walden Bello and former Sen. Rene Saguisag.

Quicho said UNA will not take advantage of the Pcquiao fight to gain publicity.

While praying that Pacquiao would win the fight, Quicho said he is not sure if Binay will be in Las Vegas to cheer Paquiao as the Vice President will be busy in the campaign trail.

What is clear is that we are fully supporting Pacquiao and we will help if he ask for our advice, said Quicho.

Vice President Jejomar Binay has come to the rescue of party mate Sarangani Representative Manny Pacquiao who had been skewered by the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community for saying that those in “same marriage are worse than animals.”

Binay is the standard bearer of the  opposition United Nationalist Alliance (UNA) under which boxing hero Pacquiao is running for Senator in the May elections.

Pacquiao is “known to be very God-fearing,” said Binay in Cebu City on February 16 after UNA formed a coalition with local political bloc One Cebu.

Binay, a Catholic, backed Pacquiao, a Christian pastor, on the issue.

“I take the position of the Catholic Church,” said Binay.

Same-sex union is taboo in the Catholic Church.

After the criticisms, Pacquiao said he did not mean to hurt anyone.

I was only telling the truth as stated in the Bible, he said.

He would later apologize to the LGBT community.
