WBO world welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao, 37, who retired from boxing to join politics won big when he got elected into the Philippines' senate on Thursday. He was declared among 12 new members of the upper house of Congress by the Philippine's elections commission.



Last week, voters cast their ballots to choose a president, vice president, 12 senators, 200 members of the lower house of Congress and 18,000 local officials and he was one of the 12 senators.

Pacquiao told reporters:
"I can focus and discipline myself, the way I did in boxing to help the nation,"  He said as a new senator, he would push for free education at all levels.


Manny Pacquiao who is also a two-term congressman also said he favours restoring the death penalty for drug-related and other serious crimes.
