MANILA, Philippines - Sen. Sergio Osmena III welcomed the decision of talent manager Annabelle Rama to run for congresswoman of Cebu.

"It will be fun! It's like having Miriam (Santiago) run there," said Osmena, a Cebuano.

"They have very colorful personalities, very outspoken, very beautiful."

"She has a right to present herself for public office and I wish her well. Sana ituloy niya," he added.

Rama announced Friday that she will run for Congress next year. On Twitter, Rama said she is eyeing a congressional seat in Cebu, dismissing rumors that she will run as councilor.

"Mali ka. I'm running for congresswoman of Cebu,” she told a Twitter follower.
