Mayor Pacquiao unfazed by RCRi challenge in 2025

General Santos City Mayor Lorelie Pacquiao is unfazed by the declaration of the opposition to challenge her in the coming 2025 elections.

On Sunday, former City Mayor Ronnel Rivera announced that the RCRi Party is preparing for a possible face-off with Pacquiao’s People’s Champ Movement Party.

He also confirmed that there are already talks and preparations to ensure a formidable presence in next year’s local polls.

In a message to Politiko, Pacquiao said she welcomed the pronouncement of Rivera as she respect the right of everyone to run for public office.

“OK raman na. Ila mana ka tungod na mo dagan kay ang tanan may katungod man gyud,” Pacquiao said.

She also said that politics will not distract her from fulfilling her responsibility to ensure the welfare of her constituents.

“Wala man tay laing tinguha gyud kondili maserbisyuhan ang atong siyudad, ang atong mga kaigsuunan,” she added.

Meanwhile, the camp of Rivera is expected to formally announce political plans in a scheduled press conference on April 18.
