Remulla: It won’t be a stroll in the park

MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) — World Boxing Organization (WBO) welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao will have a tough political battle when he faces the well-entrenched political clan of the Chiongbians for the lone congressional seat in Sarangani province.

In an interview on ANC’s Rundown Monday night, Edwin Espejo, 50, a veteran journalist from General Santos (GenSan) City, said Pacquiao’s battle against the Chiongbians may be similar to his lost battle against the Antonino clan in South Cotabato in 2007.

“Unfortunately for Manny, the same situation confronts him now. The Chiongbians have been in local politics even longer than the Antoninos. It was the Chiongbians who authored the bill that created GenSan and also authored the bill that created Sarangani,” Espejo said.
