Luis Manzano is not yet going to run in the 2010 elections


Many people are speculating that Luis Manzano is planning to enter politics, primarily because his parents Vilma Santos and Edu Manzano have been both involved in government for years now. But he emphasized that politics is still not on his agenda yet. "Maraming nagaakala na tatakbo ako pero hindi pa ako tatakbo for any position this coming May elections. Pero yes, I'm definitely open to politics kung feeling ko nandun na ang panawagan sa akin ng tao at kung tingin ko 'yun ang magiging path ko sa buhay. Pero as of now, these coming elections, hindi pa."

Even Luis's ex-girlfriend Angel Locsin had previously mentioned the she sees a huge potential in the actor. "He's very smart and nasa posisyon naman siya na makaimpluwensiya ng mabuti sa ibang tao." For now, Luis said that he will just give his full support to his parents' political careers. "I'll give my support not just to my dad, siyempre sa mommy ko rin, kay Tito Ralph (former senator Ralph Recto, Vilma's husband) kahit magkakaiba sila ng partido. There is no question, I will support them as individuals."

Like other Kapamilya stars, Luis does not have much planned for Christmas except for spending it with his family and welcoming the New Year together. "Christmas is for the family talaga, to spend time with them na madalas napapabayaan mo na like sit down to talk and konting inuman, catching up. And it's been a very, very blessed year. Just like any year, it has its ups and downs pero it gives me more reason to look forward to 2010." The actor also said that he is the type that does not believe in New Year's resolutions. "I don't believe in New Year's resolution kasi why do you have to wait for a particular day to have a resolution? If you think that something is going wrong and is not okay with you palitan mo na, 'wag ka na maghintay ng New Year."

As for what he could give his ex-girlfriend Angel, he replied, "Mahirap magbigay sa taong meron na [halos lahat. And if I would be giving Angel a gift,) it is something very, very personal. Kung sa material na bagay naman lahat na na kay Angel, lahat na kaya niyang bilhin kaya it has to be something personal, something I will be the one to create or something to reminisce on."
