‘I feel wonderful tonight!’: Robin Padilla hails Senate victory as symbol of Muslim-Christian unity

Actor Robin Padilla was in high spirits Wednesday (May 18) as he was officially proclaimed senator-elect.

Padilla hailed his victory as a symbol of unity between Muslims and Christians in a speech at the proclamation of new senators at the Philippine International Convention Center.

The actor topped the senatorial race with over 26 million votes.

“Ang akin pong pagkapanalo ay isa pong simbulo ng pagkakaisa ng mga Muslim at Kristiyano. Sa loob po ng matagal na panahon, halos umabot po ng 30 taon, wala pong Muslim ang naging senador na,” Padilla said.

“Ako po’y nakiusap na sana mabigyan niyo ng pagklakataon ang inyong mga kapatid na mabigyan ng representasyon sa Senado,” he added.

Padilla capped off his short speech by singing the Eric Clapton hit, “Wonderful Tonight,” which he also sang in campaign rallies.

Bilang panghuling salita po, dahil dalawang minute lang ‘to, gusto ko pong malaman niyo na it’s late in the evening. I feel wonderful tonight. Maraming salamat po,” the actor said.
