Willie Revillame reveals his best realization upon turning down Senator offer of Pres. Rodrigo Duterte

LionhearTVOctober 9, 2021

October 7, Kapuso host Willie Revillame announced that he is not running Senator in the 2022 elections during an episode of Tutok to Win sa Wowowin.

Revillame shared his realizations throughout a 20-minute segment explaining why he didn’t run for Senator despite receiving an offer from President Rodrigo Duterte.

He explained that he doesn’t see himself running because he has no background in policymaking and governance to fulfill the role of a Senator.

“Kung sakaling tatakbo ako sa Senado hindi naman ako magaling mag-English, wala akong alam sa batas, baka lait-laiitin ako roon. Baka wala rin naman ako maiambag na batas, o dumating yung time na sayang din yung boto niyo sa akin.”

“Dapat pag pinasok mo ang isang bagay, mag-e-excel ka, makakagawa ka ng kabutihan, makakagawa ka ng tama. Pag tinanong ka Willie, bakit ka tumakbo, gusto ko gumawa ng kabutihan. O kabutihan lang ba ang dapat mong gawin kapag nasa senado ka. Dapat marunong kang magbasa ng batas. Dapat marunong kang gumawa ng batas.”

He also pointed out the current political climate as one of the reasons why he won’t be running for office.

“Sa nakikita ko ho ngayon, nakikita kong hindi nagkakasundo, nakikita kong nagbabangayan, nakikita mong pataasan ng ere, hanapan ng dumi, sabi ko napaka-hirap pasukin ng isang bagay na ganito ‘yung papasukin ko.”

He also urged officials to become public servants instead of becoming politicians.

“Seven months, pinag-isipan ko po ito anong magiging desisyon ko sa buhay ko. Pitong buwan, araw-gabi, papasukin ko ba ‘to, pero sa nakikita ko ho, napakahirap gawin nito. Sana lahat ng politiko, hindi politiko, you should be a public servant.”
