Pac­man is a win­ner

7 Days in Dubai - - GLOBAL NEWS -

Box­ing great Manny Pac­quiao ap­pears to have won a seat in the Philip­pine Se­nate, ac­cord­ing to un­of­fi­cial re­sults. Pac­quiao has gar­nered more than 15 mil­lion votes, with about 93 per cent of precincts re­port­ing yes­ter­day. That places him eighth among can­di­dates for 12 Se­nate seats, and nearly 3 mil­lion votes ahead of the can­di­date in 13th place. Of­fi­cial re­sults are days away. He cast his vote on Mon­day in his home turf of south­ern Sarangani prov­ince. He had bounced back in polls af­ter los­ing sup­port in February over re­marks he made about same-sex marriage.
