AT the filing of his certificate of candidacy for the highest post in the land, Manny Pacquiao revealed his vice-presidential running mate: former Manila mayor Lito Atienza.

Pacquiao selected the current House deputy speaker as his running mate because of his previous experience. "Pinili ko si Congressman Atienza, unang-una yung pagseserbisyo at paglilingkod niya sa bayan," he told reporters.

The filing of his certificate of candidacy comes a day after Pacquiao announced his retirement from boxing.
