PBA star James Yap is eyeing a career in politics by running for councilor in San Juan City.

Yap filed his certificate of candidacy last week. He will be running as part of the slate of Mayor Francis Zamora.

In an Instagram post, Yap said it was his “desire” to serve residents of San Juan that prompted him to aspire to become a politiko.

“Hamon man para sa isang baguhang tulad ko na pasukin ang larangan ng pulitika, hindi ako natitinag. Muli, daldalhin ko ang pagsisikap at dedikasyon hanggang sa maipaabot sa mga bawat San Juaneño ang maginhawang buhay,” said the 39-year-old former husband of Kris Aquino.

“Sa mga taga-unang distrito ng San Juan, magpupursige po si James Yap na ipaabot sa inyo ang magandang kalidad ng pamumuhay na nararapat para sa inyo,” he added.
