Vico Sotto for president? ‘Kalokohan lang ‘yun!’

0 115

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has shrugged off calls for him to run for president because of his stellar performance as local chief executive.

Sotto, 32, told ANC’s “Headstart” on Monday, July 19, that he’s not entertaining thoughts of running for higher office.

“Kalokohan lang yun. Una 32 (years old) lang ako. I don’t entertain those thoughts, whether now or the future. Dapat magfocus ako sa trabaho ngayon,” he said.

The Constitution requires a presidential candidate to be at least 40 years old on election day.

Sotto said he would rather focus on his plans for Pasig. He confirmed he will seek reelection in 2022.
