Rex Gatchalian gets Tito Sotto to administer oath of Valenzuela politikos


The Senate President drove all the way north for this occasion.

Mayor Rexlon Gatchalian wanted to start his last term in Valenzuela City with a bang, so he got a high-level official to administer his oath of office. The politiko chose no less than Senate President Tito Sotto, a fellow stalwart at the Nationalist People’s Coalition, to lead the ceremony for him and the rest of the Valenzuela City Council members.

It was a particularly brave move, given that the rains threatened the flood-prone city.

“Salamat Senate President @sotto_tito for coming to Valenzuela to administer my oath as City Mayor, as well as the oaths of our entire Tayo na Valenzuela Team! Kahit na maulan at malayo dinayo niyo pa din kami,” Gatchalian said after the event.
