Dingdong Dantes admits that he considered running for public office: “Lahat po ito nag-uugat sa pagmamahal natin sa Inang Bayan”

Kapuso actor Dingdong Dantes admits that he really considered running for public office many years ago.

In an interview with Boy Abunda, Dantes said he almost entered politics because of his love for the country.

“Sa tingin ko po ay lahat po ito nag-uugat sa pagmamahal natin sa Inang Bayan, at higit sa lahat pagmamahal sa kapwa. We recognize na iba-iba naman ang paraan natin ng pagpapakita nito.” Dingdong said.

“Ako, gusto ko po aminin na may panahon na I really thought na sana may [opportunity] for me to do more for the Filipino people over and beyond my work here in the industry.” he added.

However, he decided not to pursue his plan because he thought of the big responsibilities waiting for him if he ever got elected.

“It’s because I have high regards for public office, especially kapag sinabing public office, ibig sabihin, ayun dapat ang topmost priority. With that recognition, alam ko na hindi siya ganun kadali. I recognize that it’s not that easy, it will require much of your time, energy, love, passion, and yourself. he stated.

According to him, he preferred to spend his time with his two children with Marian Rivera.

“I want to be the best father to my children, I want to be the best husband to Marian, be a good son, and responsible member of this beautiful industry, while striving to be a good citizen every day.” he remarked.

He believed that even without any government position, people could still contribute to the betterment of the country.

It can be remembered that Dingdong was a staunch supporter of the Liberal Party and he was also close to its key officials including late President Noynoy Aquino and former Vice President Leni Robredo.

Because of being an active supporter of LP, he was always being pushed to run for public service under the said party.
