MVP: I’m not running for POC president

Telecommunication mogul Manny V. Pangilinan isn’t keen on seeking the highest position in the Philippine Olympic Committee (POC) despite calls for him to challenge incumbent president Jose “Peping” Cojuangco Jr. in next month’s POC polls.

“This time, not really,” said Pangilinan late Friday after watching Meralco beat Barangay Ginebra l in Game 1 of the PBA Governors’ Cup finals series.

When asked if some local sports officials have approached him to consider challenging Cojuangco for the POC top post, Pangilinan said there’s none, although he mentioned, “some people suggested that.”

“Di ba a few years ago some people raised yun, di naman nangyari yun. Saka ayokong… political yun e,” added Pangilinan, who likewise cited his busy schedule with his various companies.
