Sharon Cuneta not running for political office
Megastar Sharon Cuneta is not planning to join the politiko world anytime soon.
The megastar prefers to support her brother Chet Cuneta in his mayoralty bid in Pasay City instead. She accompanied her brother when he filed his certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections office in their hometown.
“We need lots of prayers and support,” she wrote on Instagram, adding that her brother wants to help ensure Pasay City revenues from casinos, malls and others go to the people and the city, not the pocket of some officials.
“We need your help to be able to do this. Neither of us has ang higher political ambitions. Kuya wants to do what he can to help, and that’s it,” she said.

Accompanied my brother Chet yesterday to the Comelec in Pasay City as he filed his Certificate of Candidacy for Mayor. We need lots of support and prayers. We don’t have THAT kind of money because we’ve been working simple, honest jobs. Let Pasay’s money earned from the likes of MOA and the casinos, etc. go to the people and the city of Pasay, where it belongs. We need your help to be able to do this. Neither of us has any higher political ambitions. Kuya wants to do what he can to help, and that’s it. We also hope that the Ombudsman please pay attention to the cases of corruption filed against some Pasay officials ages ago. Why so many delays? Hopefully not because of pay-offs. The new Ombudsman, we are counting on you po. To run while there are cases of corruption filed against you even before Chet decided to run for office is just way out of line. Kung ako, iilinisin ko muna ang pangalan ko bago ako humarap sa tao at humingi ng boto uli. Nakakahiya naman.
