Contrary to what he announced earlier, Filipino boxing icon and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao on Saturday said he will not be running for vice-president in the 2016.
A report on GMA News Live said Manny clarified that he cannot run for the second highest post of the land because of age qualification.
