Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto gets second term in landslide victory
Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto has secured a second term as local chief executive after a landslide victory in the May 9 polls.
Sotto was proclaimed the winner on Tuesday morning.
He trounced rival Iyo Caruncho Bernardo, getting 335,851 votes to Bernardo’s 45,604.
Despite Sotto’s big lead, Bernardo did not give up the race easily.
Hours after the polls closed, Bernardo addressed his supporters, saying he could not believe that he got zero votes in some precincts.
“Sana ituloy natin ang aksyon at laban para sa Pasigueño,” he said.
Bernardo’s supporters called for a manual count of the votes.
Sotto’s running mate Dodot Jaworksi was also successful in his bid, getting 205,250 votes.
Jaworski’s closest rival, Junjun Concepcion, got 87,716 votes.
