Mariel Padilla has come out to defend her husband, Robin Padilla against critics not happy with his decision to run in the upcoming elections.
Mariel posted a photo of Robin on Instagram recently.
She wrote as caption: “Robin is not hungry for money or power. He is at a point in his life wherein he just wants to make a difference. Put action to all his complaints. Speak for the muslims…”
She also assured her husband of her continued support: “Behind you, beside you and with you all the way @robinhoodpadilla.”
Robin filed on Friday his certificate of candidacy (COC).
He will run under the ruling PDP-Laban under the faction headed by Energy Secretary Alfonso Cusi.
He earlier took his oath as a new member of the party.
