Kris Aquino announced on Saturday that she has no plan to run for Senate in the upcoming 2019 elections.
Kris made the remark on her official Instagram account after she was placed 19th to 23rd bracket in the Pulse Asia survey on 2019 senatorial race.
“ALLOW ME TO FIRMLY SAY THAT I WON’T SEEK ANY NATIONAL ELECTIVE POST IN 2019,” she said in the post.
Kris also wrote that she is the only parent providing for the financial and emotional well being of her sons: Josh who has special needs, and Bimb who is only 11 years old.
She added: “HINDI PO AKO TATAKBO PARA SA SENADO IN 2019 (I won’t run for Senate in 2019)”.
The actress stated that it is also unfair for his cousin, reelectionist Senator Paolo Benigno Aquino IV.
“It is unfair to my cousin @bamaquino that in this Pulse Asia poll an Aquino who has stated many times that SHE won’t run for the senate in 2019 had to be included…”

My armor is the TRUTH substantiated in part by KCAP credit card billings (the irony of which is that KCAP is a SOLE PROPRIETORSHIP company and Kristina C. Aquino herself never once used the credit card). Now let me tell you my story. If you follow me on IG you know i’ve barely posted new pictures of me… July 27 when a Medical Evacuation plane flew me home, my health hasn’t been good, most likely that was already my woman’s intuition warning me. My sisters didn’t want me to fly to the Crazy Rich Asians Hollywood premiere. BUT i pleaded my case… we flew to Hawaii for me to get healthier while my auditing team did their due diligence because i saw some red flags. I’ve taken pride in my professionalism, my 100% honesty about financial dealings, and my total respect for endorsement contracts. Direcho na- alam kong pumalpak ako in the past sa personal life so bumabawi ako ng bongga sa trabaho ko at sa pagsusumikap na maging mabuting ina. Because of this ALLOW ME TO FIRMLY SAY THAT I WON’T SEEK ANY NATIONAL ELECTIVE POST IN 2019. i am the only parent providing for the financial & emotional well being of Kuya Josh who has special needs, and Bimb who is only 11 years old. HINDI PO AKO TATAKBO PARA SA SENADO IN 2019. It is unfair to my cousin @bamaquino that in this Pulse Asia poll an Aquino who has stated many times that SHE won’t run for the senate in 2019 had to be included… Today we uploaded the @samsungph webisode & i want to express my gratitude to them for recognizing my values & honesty. Heartfelt gratitude also to my @chowkingph family for delaying our TVC shoot scheduled for tomorrow until i’m in better health. In the 6 weeks that i quietly suffered because of financial abuse & betrayal, the stress, inability to eat & sleep properly caused my weight to go down to under 54 kilos. I apologize to all my endorsements & brand partners for paying the price of a Kris Aquino struggling to again find her inner WARRIOR. I have asked both Atty Sig Fortun & Atty Florin Hilbay to take charge of my legal team for me to get the JUSTICE i deserve.(My bloodworks from yesterday had good WBC count, waiting for my thyroid antibodies results.)
