Film

Lapid entered the film industry as a stuntman, and became an actor.

Political career

In 1992, he ran under the opposition block Nationalist People's Coalition as vice governor of Pampanga, defeating the incumbent vice governor.

In 1995, he ran against Guiao as governor of Pampanga under the same party and won. Lapid joined the administration party Lakas NUCD. Lapid ran for reelection under the administration block. After the impeachment of Estrada in 2000 and the second EDSA Revolution, Lapid ran for reelection. Lapid won a third term as governor.

In 2003, Lapid decided to run as mayor of Angeles City, Pampanga.

Senator of the Philippines

But in the 2004 Senatorial Elections, his fellow cabalen, President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo encouraged him to run as senator under the administration coalition K4. Lapid accepted the offer and won the election landing in the eleventh position.

In the bid to change the Philippine Constitution, Lapid was rumored to be planning to participate in the House backed Constituent Assembly [1] but Lapid backed the senate resolution against the resolution passed by the House of Representatives creating the constituent assembly without Senate concurrence.[2] In May 2006, Lapid said that he was planning to run against Jejomar Binay as mayor of Makati City citing reasons that he could save Makati from public demonstrations against President Arroyo. He further stated that he could retain his position as senator in case he lost in the 2007 local elections.[3][4] Senators Panfilo Lacson, Raul Roco, Miriam Defensor Santiago, Sergio Osmeña III, Juan Ponce Enrile, Francisco Tatad all retained their senate seats when they ran for higher elective positions President and Vice President in the 1998 and 2004 elections. However, eminent former justice Isagani Cruz takes exception to this view.[5]

Personal life

He was the fifth of nine children by Jose Lapid and Eleuteria Mercado. He completed his elementary education at Porac Central School in 1968, and secondary education at St. Catherine Academy of Porac, Pampanga in 1972. Lapid did not enroll for his tertiary education.[citation needed] His uncle is Jess Lapid Sr.

Lapid married Marissa Tadeo Lapid. Lapid had two sons and two daughters with Tadeo: Maan Krista, Mitzi Karen, Maynard and Mark. Maynard is an aspiring actor whose career started in 2006. Mark Lapid is former governor of Pampanga who is presently the General manager of the Philippine Tourism Authority.[6]
