MANILA, Philippines—To show his utmost admiration for reelectionist Senator Grace Poe, Coco Martin swore to stake his name for the success of the independent candidate and the current survey leader.

“Itataya ko po ang pangalan ko para po sa kanya sa sobrang pagmamahal ko dito sa taong ito,” the “Ang Probinsyano” star declared in a campaign sortie held in Biñan, Laguna on Tuesday.


Martin plays Cardo Dalisay in the long-running series, which is an adaptation of the 1997 movie starring Poe’s late action star father Fernando Poe Jr. or FPJ for short.

He also expressed admiration for Poe, saying: “Alam niyo po, mayroon akong isang taong sobrang hinahangaan, ini-idolo sa kanyang mga pangarap para sa ating bayan. Itong taong ito ay itinuturing ko na po na isa kong pamilya.”


Poe likewise said kind words about the action star, who she said why he was chosen to play the star of the long-running teleserye.

“Alam mo, bakit siya ang napiling Probinsyano? Dahil sa lahat ng mga artista ngayon, makikita mo sa kanyang mata at sa kanyang pagkilos ang alaala ni FPJ,” Poe said. “Makikita mo na matulungin siya sa kanyang kapwa, nagsikap siya, nag-umpisa siya na mahirap pero siya ay nagsipag. Noong siya ay nagtagumpay, marami siyang natulungan.”

Poe, along with fellow reelectionist candidate Cynthia Villar, found herself topping the latest Pulse Asia senatorial survey.
