Ogie Alcasid Has A List Of Candidates He Will Be Supporting For The May PollsOgie Alcasid will support senatorial bets Risa Hontiveros and Bam Aquino, both members of the Liberal Party, which is headed by President Benigno Aquino III.
Alcasid also supported Aquino when he run for presidency in the May 2010 elections.
The singer-songwriter said during an interview with PEP.PH during the Foursome Repeat presscon that he will also be supporting Dingdong Avanzado, who is running for governor of Siquijor, and Mayor Herbert Bautista, who is aiming for another term in Quezon City.
As of now, Alcasid revealed that those four candidates are the ones he will be supporting. As head of the Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM), he said that other members of the group can also support and campaign for their own candidates.
“It’s their right,” he told PEP.PH.
He said that when it comes to politics, OPM members also differ in what they believe in. But he said that all of them are hoping for a clean election.
Alcasid, however, denied that he has any plans of joining politics. He said that he doesn’t enjoy the way politics works.
“I really enjoy seeing my friends, pakanta-kanta lang kami, pasayaw-sayaw. That’s the best job in the world, di ba? Pakain-kain lang,” he jokingly said.
Alcasid said that he cannot replace his being an artist for anything else.
