Manny Pacquiao elected into Philippines senate

Boxing star Manny Pacquiao, 37 scored a big political win on Thursday as he was elected into the Philippines senate. The WBO world welterweight champion was declared among 12 new members of the upper house of Congress by the country's elections commission.

Last week, voters cast their ballots to choose a president, vice president, 12 senators, 200 members of the lower house of Congress and 18,000 local officials. About 80 percent of 55 million eligible voters turned out in the general elections, which are held every six years.
