MANILA, Philippines – Atty. Leni Robredo only has good words for actor Aga Muhlach, who is running for Congress in the fourth district of Camarines Sur.

Atty. Leni Robredo says she believes actor Aga Muhlach has good intentions to help his district in Camarines Sur.

In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Tuesday, Robredo said Muhlach really seems to have the desire to make a difference.

“I think he has very pure intentions to help his district. I met him several times. He’s very passionate about what he can do for the fourth district of Camarines Sur,” she said.

But just like her, Robredo said Muhlach should probably be properly guided since both of them are new in the world of politics.

“Because he is new in politics, siguro kailangan din i-guide what to do. Pero 'yung intentions, palagay ko nandoon. You can see the fire in his eyes,” she said.

Robredo recalled that when she met Muhlach, she told him that he is very fortunate to have a wife who supports his cause.

“Pati si Charlene. I met her several times. Sabi ko nga kay Aga napakaswerte niya sa asawa niya kasi the way I saw Charlene doon sa district nila, she genuinely likes being with people, hindi pilit. Bihira iyon eh. Palagay ko yung desire to make a difference nandoon talaga,” she said.

Muhlach is throwing his hat into the political ring by running for congressman of Camarines Sur's fourth district under the Liberal Party (LP).

Robredo, on the other hand, is running for congresswoman of Camarines Sur’s third district also under the LP. - from a report by Mario Dumaual, ABS-CBN News
