VICO SOTTO – The Pasig Mayor is confirmed to have resigned from the political party Aksyon Demokratiko.

One of the mayors that instantly made a name in the political arena is Mayor Vico Sotto. A lot of Pasigueños and even those Filipinos who are not his constituents admire the way he leads Pasig City.

Mayor Sotto is currently on his second term as mayor of Pasig City. On his first mayoralty race, his victory ended the decade-long reign of the Eusebios in the city. His victory was tagged as a new face in the political arena.

Last May 2022 Elections, Mayor Sotto was re-elected following a landslide victory against his rival, then Vice Mayor Iyo Bernardo. He ran under Aksyon Demokratiko then and was vocal about distancing from the national elections.
