Kapuso star Marian Rivera expressed to fully support husband Dingdong Dantes should he decide to run for public office. She said she believes in the capability of her husband and his goodness as a person.
In a press conference which happened last February 5 during the signing of the contract renewal with GMA Network, Marian reiterated that she will give her 101% support to Dingdong just in case he would want to enter the world of politics. She claimed she doesn’t see anything wrong with Dingdong’s decision because she’s quite sure he can do a lot for the country.
Marian added that many people can attest to how good her husband is so she’s always willing to support him in any endeavor he would choose. However, there’s still no confirmation coming from Dingdong’s side if he would run for public office.
When asked if she’s ready for criticisms, Marian claimed she had not thought of it as of the moment and would just deal with it when that time comes. But then, she said it wouldn’t be a problem as she’s thinking more of what her husband can do than any criticism that may be thrown towards them.
Meanwhile, in a previous interview of Philippine Entertainment Portal (PEP.ph) last August 2017, Dingdong was repeatedly asked if he has plans of getting into the world of politics. The Kapuso actor then expressed at that time that he has no plans of running for public office.
Just like many celebrities who occupied positions in the government, many netizens believe that Dingdong can also serve as their “voice” under Duterte’s administration.
