Boy Abunda on entering politics: It’s difficult to say never

Chuck Smith - The Philippine Star
MANILA, Philippines - Boy Abunda said he won’t be running for public office in 2016 but adds he’s not closing his doors when it comes to politics.
 
In his Showbiz News Now Na! column on tabloid Pilipino Star Ngayon published on Monday, the ABS-CBN TV host wrote he would rather spend more time with his family than run for office in the 2016 national elections. 
 
 
However, Abunda cannot say for certain if he's completely turning his back on politics
 
“Am I closing my doors? Mahirap, it’s difficult to say never,” he said.
 
Nonetheless, the “Aquino and Abunda Tonight” co-host said politics is not in his plans for 2016, even if his mother wanted him “to get into public service.”
 
“In our small family, I have a sister who is the Mayor of our small city in Borongan. Nanay, after having been a public school teacher went into politics. My father was a town politician. I’m the only one who didn’t go into public service,” Abunda wrote.
 
He added: “I’m sure she would be proud if I went into public service but am I running for public office in 2016? No, dati I was looking into running for a post in Eastern Samar, pero ngayon parang I want to spend more time with my family.”
 
“I want to write more books for ABS-CBN Publishing. There are other things that I am aiming to do,” Abunda said.
