‘Mahal ko ang bansa’: Enchong Dee on his candid takes on the government


Kapamilya star Enchong Dee is not only known for his work as an actor, he is also acknowledged for his candid takes on the government online. 

The 31-year-old actor-athlete shared that many have already asked him to run for a seat in the government, but for Enchong, public service is not just for politicians. 

“Sa totoo lang ayaw ko talaga. Ang dami ring nagsasabi sa akin na tumakbo. Kasi yung public service pwede mo siyang gawin kahit hindi ka nakaupo,” he said in a report from Pilipino Star Ngayon.  

Enchong has always been purposeful with his comments regarding the country’s state on social media. Just recently, he penned a remark on ABS-CBN’s franchise renewal issue, asking Filipinos to be vigilant “not only because jobs are in peril, but mainly because we are Filipinos fighting for the democracy and constitution of our country.”

The actor said it is better for him to maintain his duty to the Filipino people without a price. 

“Alam naman natin kung ano talaga ang nangyayari sa loob ng pulitika. Mas okay na rin ako na tahimik ang buhay ko saka walang presyo. Yung lalabas ka sa bahay mo safe ka, walang nakatingin sayo o ta-target sayo. Lagi kong sinasabi walang presyo yung peace of mind,” he said. 

He added that his purpose for being so vocal about politics is his love for the country. 

“Ako naman ang punu’t dulo ko naman mahal ko lang ang bansa. Gusto ko lahat ng Pilipino mayaman, gusto ko lahat tayo mayaman. Yun lang naman gusto ko eh. If I can do it in a way na wala ako sa gobyerno, mas okay ako.”
