What will make Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. run for president in 2010 elections? Revilla, who is also an actor, said it is all up to the people.
"I will base my decision siguro on survey because I believe in survey. The voice of the people is the voice of God. Vox populi, vox Dei. So kung ano ‘yong magiging senyales ng Panginoon, I will wait for that," Revilla said.
"Mahirap kasing pumasok, ipilit ‘yong sarili mo na hindi ka naman napapanahon. hindi ka naman gusto ng tao, o hindi naman gusto ng Panginoon, mahirap na," he added.
Revilla said he was overwhelmed by reports that he was being considered to become the standard bearer of the ruling party Lakas-Christian Muslim Democrats (CMD) in 2010 polls.
He said he could not believe it when he first heard about the reports. He said it is a victory in itself if he makes it on the list of Lakas members who are being considered to become the party’s presidential bet.
“That's why I'm very thankful sa mga kasamahan ko sa partido... may mga tao palang naniniwala din if ever naman," he said.
Currently though, Revilla said he would rather focus on his work as a senator and not think about the 2010 polls.
Meanwhile, Revilla, a star of a television show in another network, said he is set to do a remake of “Panday.” He said it might be shown October or November of this year.
