MANILA, Philippines — If he wins as the country’s next president, Senator Manny Pacquiao said he will appoint evangelist Eddie Villanueva as his anti-corruption czar.

Villanueva, who is currently among many deputy speakers at the House of Representatives, represents the Citizens’ Battle Against Corruption (CIBAC) Party-list whose main advocacy, Pacquiao pointed out, is to fight corruption.

“If God wills that I [will be] president of our nation, I would appoint Congressman Eddie Villanueva, better known as Brother Eddie Villanueva as corruption czar,” the boxer-turned-politician said in a statement.

“With Brother Eddie, I am confident that justice can finally be attained against the corrupt officials of government – past and present,” he added.
