May 13 has passed but it is still election season in the Philippines now. Currently, the Filipino people are monitoring the updates regarding the counting of votes and the proclamations happening everywhere in the country.
Undeniably, in this midterm election 2019, a lot of famous personalities in the Philippine showbiz industry sought for seats in the government. They made a decision to leave the limelight in the entertainment industry and become public servants.
