Lipa, Batangas -- Kris Aquino, who is reportedly running for public office in 2016, is planning to learn the ropes from the experts – Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte and Iloilo City mayor Jed Patrick Mabilog.

“After maikot na ng  bonggang bongga ang mga cities, tumatak sa akin ang Davao and Iloilo city. Vinolunteer ko ang sarili ko. I want to OJT (on-the-job) with these mayors -- Mayor Duterte and Mayor Jed. Pwede two weeks para makita ko kung kaya ko and I have what at it takes to be a good public servant,” she said at the Batangas leg of “Rock the Vote,” where she endorsed cousin Bam Aquino’s senatorial bid.

This early, Kris’ detractors have been hitting her reported political plans, saying, among others, that it would add one more Aquino in government.

She asked critics not to give their verdict at this point.

“Ano ba naman ang three years? I’m not sure kung buhay pa ako in three years so huwag na muna mag-judge.”

Kris, radiant in a yellow t-shirt that matched Bam’s, explained why she is helping her 36-year-old cousin campaign.

“Bam is unlike other Aquinos who are maingay and madaldal. Ang pinakabongga sa kanya is namimili siya ng sasabihin pero tama ang sinasabi niya.”

The actress-TV host feels overwhelmed at the big crowd turn-out in Lipa and the presence of artists (Christian Bautista, Jim Paredes, Noel Cabangon joined the Lipa event) who can command “hundreds of thousands of people” in their concerts. But she told Bam that artists can only do so much.

“At the end of the day, it’s still grassroots support.”

She also wished that “Lahat ng kinampanya ko, pasok sa Magic 12 or else masisira ang track record ko.”

Meanwhile, Kris reiterated plans to take a showbiz break to bond and travel with sons Josh and Bimby for six weeks.

“Bakasyon si Bimby from June to August at may (medical) tests si Josh in July. Priority naming ang check-up ni Josh.”

She asked for privacy and refused to reveal where she and her sons are going on vacation.

Bam Aquino and Kris Aquino is interviewed by the press during the Rock the Vote campaign rally in Lipa City, Batangas, 83-kilometers south of Manila on 08 May 2013.
