There are over 350,000 confirmed registered voters in General Santos City, according to the Commission on Elections.

Pacquiao earlier said he wanted to conduct his campaign kick-off in General Santos City because it was where he dreamt of rising above poverty.

“Sa GenSan kasi dito nagsimula ang aking mga pangarap na maiahon ko ang aking pamilya sa kahirapan, maiahon ko sa kahirapan ang aking mga kamag-anak, makatulong sa kanila at magtagumpay sa aking mga pangarap,” he said.

(It is where I started dreaming of plucking my family out of poverty, helping my relatives, and reaching my goals.)

“Kaya dito magsisimula ang aking pangarap na magkaroon ng maayos at maunlad na bansa at malinis na pag-gobyerno,” he added.

(So this is where I want to start my journey toward an orderly and prosperous government.)

On Feb. 9, Pacquiao is set to visit Alabel, Sarangani.
