Vico Sotto: A breath of fresh air in Philippine politics

/ 05:02 AM May 24, 2019

With the triumph of Vico Sotto in the midterm elections as the next Pasig City mayor, I can’t help but be gleeful for the Pasigueños and for the Philippines as a whole. As an independent candidate, he smashed a thick and sturdy wall, the Eusebios, and proved himself to be a promising new face of politics in this country.

After watching all his interviews on YouTube and reading the transcripts of his statements before, during and after the elections, I can sense, just like the others, his sincerity, eloquence and humility. He didn’t have a vice mayor or a slate of his own during his campaign, but he fought against all odds and delivered his message: genuine change for the people. He stuck with the issues and conducted a guerilla-type campaign to reach out to the minds of those who truly care for transformation.


For him, being mayor is just a title, and what’s important is to introduce systems to alleviate poverty in his city.

He is an inspiration and a breath of fresh air. May his tribe increase in the years to come!



Makati City,
