Dondon Hontiveros to try luck in Cebu City’s politics

/ 04:24 PM October 12, 2018

Cebuano basketball superstar Dondon Hontiveros is trying a new field next year.

Hontiveros will be seeking election for Cebu City south district Councilor under the opposition group Barug Team Rama – PDP Laban in the May 2019 election.

“This is different. But it still depends whether the people will accept because there’s no guarantee that I’ll win even if they know me in basketball,” Hontiveros told Cebu Daily in Cebuana.


Hontiveros said he received offers to run for Councilor from both Barug and the Bando Osmeña Pundok Kauswagan (BOPK) of Mayor Tomas Osmeña.

A registered voter of Barangay Labangon, Hontiveros said that has a lot of friends coming from the two camps.

But he opted to join Barug because the opposition group still don’t have a candidate who will focus on sports development.

Hontiveros said that he will already be joining Barug aspirants in their handshaking activities starting next week.
