GENERAL SANTOS CITY, Philippines —They partied all night, then sealed the deal at 1 a.m.

World boxing icon Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao formally joined the ranks of the opposition under the Nacionalista Party, taking his oath early Friday before Sen. Manny Villar, the NP candidate in the 2010 presidential race.

Pacquiao made it official in a simple ceremony held at the champ’s mansion in Lagao village here, a few hours following his lavish birthday bash at the KCC Convention Center where about 2,000 guests came to greet the 31-year-old multimillionaire athlete.

we think there are two stories here – one is the main thing which is manny pacquiao joins manny villar in the NP party. the other story is that manny pacquaio has turned opposition and has dropped his alignment with the arroyo administration and by extension gilbert teodoro.

we see pacquaio a lot with arroyo when he wins his boxing matches. it also helps that DENR lito atienza and arroyo admin official chavit singson are close friends and supporters of pacquaio.

while pacquiao has not really joined a lot of the political publicity for arroyo nor teodoro, with the election campaign season about to open and pacquiao running for congress, we should expect a lot more exposure for pacquiao.

villar runs a superb marketing ad advertising effort behind his campaign, we should expect  a lot of new things in the near future with pacquiao in it. and that on its own is a big loss for the arroyo administration and its candidate, gilbert teodoro.

    an appeal to congressman manny pacquiao, now that you are an honorable congressman from sarangani, you are now a representative of the people not only of your district but of the whole filipino people. visaya, tagalog ilocanos, etc,
    we do hope that you understand and are fully aware of the responsibility of your office. i can only hope and pray that one of this day, we see you hang up your boxing glove. you have proven yourself already how great you are and that you are a hero to the people. you have nothing to prove more to the world. let mayweather bark and do not fall on his games and antics. we know you can take him easily but what if by chance it is you who will fall? the responsibility of your office demands undivided time and effort and concentrations. this position deserve’s the respect thus the person holding this office are to be respected. let mayweather bark till eternity… you have reached and accomplish something that he don’t….
