Congressman Manny Pacquiao finally took his oath as the new representative of the province of Sarangani in simple rites this morning at the Sarangani Capitol Park.

Pacquiao was accompanied by his wife Jinkee, his children and his siblings.  His father was also there although there was no sign of his mother Dionisia.

Thirty one year old Congressman Pacquiao in his speech said he will concentrate on improving infrastructure, medical services and peace in order for the next three years.  Although he said that he will continue boxing, he promised to be more effective as a legislator and representative of the country’s 14th most impoverished province.
