"Not because you can win, you will run."
These were the words of Vice Ganda as he explained why is not joining politics for now.
In an interview with Dr. Vicki Belo for her YouTube vlog, the It's Showtime host revealed that he was actually asked to run for a public post which he refused to do.
"Basta mataas na posisyon, mataas na posisyon na naloka ako talagang no," he shared.
The comedian remarked that though he has followers and can potentially win, he knows that his skill is not in line with governance hence he did not pursue politics.
"Hindi ako magaling doon, pwede akong manalo. Feeling ko pwede akong manalo kasi marami akong followers, marami akong fans, baka maraming bumoto sa’kin, maraming natutuwa sa’kin pero ako sa sarili ko ngayon hindi ako magaling doon," he stated.
"So, bakit ako pupunta roon? Ano ‘yun ipapahamak ko ‘yung Pilipinas, di ba? Not because you can win, you will run. No, hindi ganoon," Vice added.
