Manoy Zubiri “extremely proud” of bro Migz for topping senatorial poll
Bukidnon 3rd District Rep. Manuel “Manoy” Zubiri said he is “extremely proud” of his brother, Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri after the latter topped the list of potential contenders in the 2022 senatorial race.
“Honestly, we weren’t expecting it. We thought he’d land on the 4th or maybe 5th spot. So this was a really nice surprise,” the older Zubiri told Bukidnon Online.
“However, I know that my brother has been working very hard so he deserves to be on the top spot. He wants nothing else but to serve the people with integrity and the survey results show that the people acknowledge his efforts,” he said.
The Bukidnon 3rd District Congressman said that he is “extremely proud” and “very happy” for his brother.
“The one Senator from Bukidnon is number one!,” Manoy said.
Meanwhile, in a Facebook post, Migz said he is “deeply honored.”
“This is truly gratifying, and I sincerely thank the people for their trust and confidence in me,” he said.
Migz topped the Pulse Asia survey with 60.9 percent voter preference.
Among those that also landed on the top 12 list were Francis “Chiz” Escudero, JV Ejercito, Sherwin Gatchalian, Bongbong Marcos, Alan Cayetano, Sara Duterte, Ping Lacson, Loren Legarda, Risa Hontiveros, Bam Aquino and Gringo Honasan.
