ANGEL Locsin is supporting the senatorial bid of relative, Bayan Muna Representative Neri Colmenares, in the 2016 elections.
On Monday, the television actress accompanied Colmenares in filing his certificate of candidacy before the Commission on Elections in Intramuros, Manila.
Locsin said she came to the poll body not as an actor, but a believer of Colmenares' capability to do good things for the country.
"Alam ko kung anong lifestyle niya. Alam ko na kahit na ang tagal na niyang naglilingkod, isa pa rin siya sa pinakamahirap na congressman sa bansa natin," she said in an ANC interview.
Colmenares has a net worth of P2.3 million in 2014 unlike most of his colleagues in the House of Representative who are multi-millionaires.
"Makakatulog ako ng mahimbing na alam ko yung buwis na binabayad ko ay mapupunta sa tama at hindi lang sa bulsa ng makikinabang, kundi sa taong bayan talaga," Locsin said.
