MANILA, Philippines — Amid accusations of vote-buying, presidential aspirant Senator Manny Pacquiao insisted Tuesday he will not stop giving relief and cash to the public until the campaign season officially begins next year.

Pacquiao said that politicians should just do the same since it is the Christmas season, adding that the aid could help those affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

He added that the would only stop giving away cash and relief once the official campaign period begins or if he was forbidden by the Commission on Elections (Comelec).

“Hanggat ‘di pa dumating yung time ng official campaign period, yung pagtutulong natin sa kapwa,sa taumbayan ay matagal ko nang ginagawa, noon pang 2002,” Pacquaio said.

“Magpapatuloy yan hanggang sa pagbawalan tayo ng  Comelec, susunod tayo. Pero nasa puso ko na yung pagtulong mula pa noon,” he added.

Pacquiao said he only wants to help the public, saying that he cannot bring his money to the grave.

“Itago niyo ang pera niyo, kahit bilyon-bilyon pa yan, kahit trillion pa,  pag namatay ka di mo naman madadala ‘yan.  Kung tumulong ka sa kapwa, napakibabangan mo, napakinabangan pa ng iba. Nakatulong ka sa kapwa,”  Pacquiao said.

“Ngayon kung naiinggit sila, gawin din nila. Lalung-lalo na yung mga nagnanakaw sa gobyerno, ibigay nila yung pera sa taumbayan, ” he added.
