Kris Aquino on joining politics: 'Hindi ko tinatanggal ang possiblity'


110214-krisa_main.jpgKris Aquino said that she is open to the possibility of joining politics. But the Queen of All Media stressed that she will not yet be running for public office this upcoming 2016 elections. "Not in 2016 pero hindi ko tinatanggal ang possiblity kasi at some point in your life you have to give back sa dami ng blessings na natanggap mo. Pero ‘yun nga pinagusapan namin ng mga kapatid ko ‘yun and with my sisters I said na number one kailangan teenager na si Bimb kasi parang ayokong masabi niya na 'My mom was never there', kung artista ka at host ka ganito na ang schedule what more kung papasukin mo ang public life."

The Aquino and Abunda host added that she wants to be an entrepreneur first before she becomes a politician. "Secondly gusto ko talaga na may business acumen ako para maramdaman ko na ‘yon ‘yung kailangan natin na we are a developing country, papunta na tayo don. Nakahanap na tayo ng mga leaders na matuwid, na mapagkakatiwalaan so dapat naman kasabay nun dapat kung whether locally nationally, dapat may business expertise ka talaga kung hindi man expertise at least hindi ka tatanga-tanga sa negosyo kasi kailangan talaga na alam mo what the process is like."

Kris recently became Chowking's newest franchisee and according to her she has experienced firsthand what it's like to be an entrepreneur. "Kasi pinagdaanan ko ‘yun. Ito ‘yung parang pagkuha ng permit sabi ko ayokong ipaayos kasi ayoko ng fixer so ginawa namin talaga. Ang sinabi ko talaga na, 'Please don’t give me special treatment' ‘yung totoong pagpila ‘yung totoong fees gusto kong gawin so ginawa naman namin in fairness."

Kris also commented on her brother's decision of choosing not to run this 2016. "I never doubted him because if there's one thing na pwede ako maging proud of sa kanya hindi sakim sa kapangyarihan ang pamilya namin so in the same way na hindi naman natin inakala na he will be the leader that he is today. I have full faith that somebody will emerge na magpapapatuloy lahat ng magagandang nasimulan niya and right now ‘yung nangyayari sa atin lahat ng mga senate investigations lahat ng mga lumalabas, masasala natin, makaka-decide tayo ng maayos kung sino ba so swerte tayo that there's enough time."
