He added, “I think he wants to become the president of his country, and I think he’ll be old enough in a couple of years.”
The Philippine Constitution requires that presidential and vice presidential candidates should be at least 40 years old on the day of the election. Pacquiao was born on December 17, 1978, he will only be 37 years old on 2016 national elections.
