Jinkee Pacquiao leads in Sarangani Vice Governor race

Celebs who won, lost

(UPDATE) Jinkee Pacquiao is leading by a wide margin with 103,438 votes--80,000 more than another woman opponent, Eleanor Saguiguit, in the vice-gubernatorial race in Mindanao's Sarangani Province.

Based on Comelec's partial and unofficial count, these figures cover 75.61% (307) of the 406 election returns.

The wife of Filipino boxing icon Manny Pacquaio will reportedly be proclaimed the winner even though the canvass of votes only began 7 AM this morning.

Jinkee made a surprise move October last year when she announced her entry in politics.

Meanwhile, the Filipino boxer is expected to win his second term in Congress in the lone district of Sarangani after running unopposed.

While showbiz personalities enjoy some amount of popularity, this edge is no proof that they can instantly win a seat in politics.

Here's the current standing of some celebrities seeking various posts in the midterm elections.
