Former Pasig City Rep. Robert “Dodot” Jaworski Jr. is planning a comeback to the local political scene by running for vice mayor in 2022, according to a report by ABS-CBN.

Citing a source, ABS-CBN said Jaworski will run alongside Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto. He is set to join Aksyon Demokratiko.

Jaworski, a former basketball player, served as the representative of Pasig’s lone congressional district from 2004 to 2007. He ran for mayor in 2007 but lost to then-incumbent Mayor Bobby Eusebio.

Sotto is set to run for reelection after a landslide victory against Eusebio in the 2019 elections.

His party, Aksyon Demokratiko, has seen an influx in members in recent months, with Manila Mayor Isko Moreno joining the organization for his presidential bid.
