Cesar Montano reveals political plans 1Actor-host Cesar Montano has finally revealed his plans for the 2010 national elections.

Montano fondly called as Buboy, admitted that he is thinking of running for the gubernatorial position in his province -- Bohol.

"I have intention, pero of course kailangan ko munang ayusin ang lahat. Maraming questions na dapat sagutin, with my family, with my business associates at sa mga trabaho ko din," the actor told ABS-CBN News.

It will be recalled the Montano or Cesar Manhilot in real life also tried his political luck when he run for senator in the 2007 elections but unfortunately he lost.

Montano, who said he is also happy with the success of his game show "The Singing Bee" on Kapamilya network which is now on its third season, said that what is important to him right now is his Panaghoy Children Foundation.
 
"Ngayon what is important is 'yong Panaghoy Children foundation na sana ay po tulungan niyo kami. We have our Web site 'yong www.panaghoy.org 'you can help, you can send children to school, ito 'yong mga bata sa Bohol na hindi kaya ng magulang mapag-aral. Matutulungan niyo sila sa Panaghoy Foundation. So bonus na lang 'yon kung makakatakbo tayo for whatever public office sa Bohol," Montano said.

Aside from focusing on the education of the children, Montano said he is also  concerned with the tourism and health services in his province.

Montano who is known for his period films like "Rizal" said that he is happy that with all his plans his wife, Sunshine Cruz, is always with him and supporting him.

"Sunshine is very excited, kasi unang una gusto niya ang Bohol gustong gusto niyang nasa beach. Gusto niya ang beach kahit hindi siya umiitim. Sa totoo lang kapag namamasyal kami sa beach siya mismo ang namumulot ng basura. Pinapakita niya ang sincere care. Ako I'm so serious about strengthening up kung ano ang mga issues kung ano ang maitutulong in my own little way," he said.

Just recently, Montano received his college diploma from the Lyceum of the Philippines and said he is still thinking of pursuing his dreams of becoming a lawyer.
