- Vico Sotto told his political rival Bobby Eusebio to move forward
- He said that it would be funny if Eusebio would actually file an election case against him
- Sotto also mentioned that it was still Eusebio’s right to protest against the election results
Pasig mayor-elect Vico Sotto told incumbent mayor Bobby Eusebio to move forward. KAMI learned that this was the response of Sotto to Eusebio’s refusal to accept his defeat.
During an interview on ABS-CBN’s Headstart, TV reporter Karen Davila mentioned that she read an article about Eusebio planning to file an election fraud against Sotto. The 29-year-old Sotto addressed this issue.
"If it's true and if he does push through that, medyo nakakatawa naman. Sila iyung incumbent, hawak nila ang ballot boxes... If he does push through with it, siya naman po ang mapapahiya, hindi naman po kami," Sotto said.
"It's his right, he can do it but it's time for us to move forward. I'm willing to work with him so we can have a smooth transition in our local government,” he continued.
Sotto also shared that some of the supporters and employees of Eusebio already told him that they were just forced to join the protest. He is positive that the people would not be a big problem once he officially becomes the mayor.
As previously reported by KAMI, Eusebio, whose family had been running Pasig for 27 years, said that he did not accept his defeat. Eusebio said that his camp will be filing an election fraud complaint against Sotto.
Vico Sotto is the son of veteran actors Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes. Before entering the mayoral race, Vico already served as a councilor of Pasig City.
