Borgy Manotoc is said to be eyeing a political post. Borgy comes from Tondo. His dad (sportsman Tommy Manotoc) hails from Gagalangin, Tondo, Borgy’s grandparents are from Tondo. His lineage and roots are all native residents of Manila,” Ilocos Norte Rep. Imee Marcos, Borgy's mother, said.
Former First Lady Imelda Marcos—who was reportedly planning to run for mayor of the Philippine capital—has decided to give way to her 23-year-old grandson. With Borgy, it’s like having Imelda Marcos run as mayor of Manila,” Imee said.
“I think politics has been part of the plan for my family, my mom included. So I can’t say I’m not gonna do it. But in the next five years, definitely not. Maybe in 10 years. But I don’t really think about it just yet. Not a conscious direction that I’m going,” Borgy said In a June 2004 Inquirer interview.
If he decides to run, Borgy would be the youngest mayoralty candidate in Manila’s history.
