Manny Pacquiao -- Will Run for President of Philippines ... Says Bob Arum

EXCLUSIVE

Hail to the Pacman?!

Manny Pacquiao wants to be PRESIDENT Manny Pacquiao ... so says his promoter Bob Arum who tells TMZ Sports he expects the boxer to run for the top office in the Philippines in the very near future. 

"He's gonna be a president," Arum told us outside Craig's in West Hollywood last night.

"He's gonna run for Senate in the Philippines in 2016 ... and then in 2022 or maybe later, he'll run for President of the Philippines."

Manny is no stranger to politics ... he was elected to the Philippine House of Representatives in 2010 and reportedly filed a handful of bills. 

The presidential term in the Philippines in 6 years ... so, if he doesn't run in 2022 ... he'd have to wait until 2028, when Manny would be 49 years old. 

But before we see if he can win an election, there's a tiny boxing match he's gotta win first. 

Good luck ...
