Talent manager Annabelle Rama announced that she will be running as representative of the North (1st) district of Cebu City where the incumbent congresswoman is Rachel B. Del Mar.
She made the unofficial announcement on her Twitter account (@annabellerama2), when she replied to someone who thought that she would be running for councilor instead, “Mali ka. I am running for congress woman of Cebu.”
Her cousin, Cebu City Mayor Michael Rama was the one who reportedly invited the controversial talent manager to run. “Other actors are entering politics, why not her, when sheâ€™s already a Rama.” he said.
As a matter of fact, Annabelle went to the COMELEC office in Cebu City early this morning to register as a voter.
