Amid speculations that she will run for an elective post in next year’s midterm elections, Kris Aquino cleared the air by saying that she does not aspire to run for any political post.

In an Instagram post, Kris responded to Senator Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV’s statement that the TV host would win should she decide to seek a post in the Senate.

The TV host said she will not be running for any elective post next year saying her contracts with her endorsements “specifically state that [she] won’t seek any elective post in 2019,” and that she should “refrain from any divisive political statements except when defending honor & dignity of family.”

Kris added that she fears breaking her word by not following the demands stated in her contracts with her endorsements.

“Totoo naman po- MAY TAKOT AKO. Takot akong sirain ang aking palabra de honor (Word of Honor) & gibain ang pakiramdam kong mga dapat kong ipagmalaki- marunong akong tumanaw ng utang na loob at may [loyalty] ako sa mga nagbigay ng trabaho at tiwala sa kin,” her post read.

The TV host said she is grateful toward the companies who continue to believe in her credibility and trustworthiness as an endorser.

@bamaquino Thank you… But you do realize i’ll violate the contract i signed w/c your wife @timiaquino negotiated if i run for any elective post in 2019? @chowkingph renewed me until 2020… for my haters, please patronize #Ariel from P&G, @pldthome, @livesmart, @iflix.ph, Nutri-Asia products, Monde Nissin, @ultherapyph, @everbilenaofficial, #UniPak, @healthyfamilyph, an Indonesian conglomerate i cannot name, the biggest Korean home appliance & entertainment company, a Thailand beauty company w/c i also cannot name, a residential properties industry leader, @unilab, a World leader airline not based in the Philippines, and the world’s biggest food company- all of whom i have commitments with that specifically state that i won’t seek any elective post in 2019 & i will refrain from any divisive political statements except when defending honor & dignity of family… marami pang ibang contracts pero ma bo-bored na kayo reading the list & i’m afraid of violating non-disclosure agreements. To all those who continue to love & support me- please join me in being super grateful to these companies for truly believing in my trustworthiness & credibility. Totoo naman po- MAY TAKOT AKO. Takot akong sirain ang aking palabra de honor (Word of Honor) & gibain ang pakiramdam kong mga dapat kong ipagmalaki- marunong akong tumanaw ng utang na loob at may #LOYALTY ako sa mga nagbigay ng trabaho at tiwala sa kin. ????

Earlier, Senator Aquino, Kris’ cousin, said the TV host is very much welcome in the Senate. “Honestly, kung itutuloy niya itong paninindigan laban sa ginagawa ng mga administrasyon, I think she’d be very welcome in the Senate,” Bam said.

The senator recalled telling Kris: “At this point na winnable ka at kaya mo manindigan, you’re more than welcome in the opposition slate. Kailangan namin ‘yan.”
