Dingdong Dantes listed by Liberal Party as possible Senatoriable
Actor Dingdong Dantes is shortlisted by the Liberal Party List among the possible Senatoriables in the upcoming elections. Other showbiz  personalities turned politicians included in the list are Isko Moreno and Herbert Bautista. 

This was announced by Caloocan Rep. Edgar Erice, a member of the ruling Liberal Party. According a Pulse Asia survey in 2014, Dingdong Dantes is among the personalities favored by respondents to run in the Senatorial race in 2016. 

But the actor, in an interview late last year, was quick to comment that he doesn’t have plans to run for office just yet. Dingdong stressed that he wants to focus on building a family first. "Sa ngayon po talaga ang concentration ko talaga is to build my family,” he said. 

Dingdong married Marian Rivera in December 2014  and has recently announced the actress' pregnancy. 

Dingdong is currently the a commissioner-at-large of the National Youth Commission. "Sa sobrang dami po ng ginagawa sa Yes Pinoy, sa NYC (National Youth Commission). Do’n palang sa trabaho ko palang marami na," he pointed out as to why politics remains in the backseat for him.
