MANILA, Philippines — Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto filed Friday his certificate of candidacy (COC) for reelection as city mayor in next year’s polls.

Sotto said he decided to file his COC on the very first day of the filing period to avoid “drama and suspense.” He was joined by his parents, celebrities Coney Reyes and Vic Sotto.

“Basta, panahon man ng pulitika o hindi, uunahin natin ang trabaho (Whether it’s the season of politics or not, we will prioritize our work first),” Sotto said in a Facebook post.

Sotto will be running with former Pasig Rep. Robert “Dodot” Jaworski as his vice mayor.

According to Sotto, he was only a mayor “under a normal circumstance” for only nine months due to the coronavirus pandemic, making it difficult to implement some of his projects.

“Kaya sa susunod na term, magtulungan tayo para bawiin ang oras na ninakaw sa atin ng COVID-19 (In our following term, let’s help each other in taking back the time that COVID-19 took away from us),” Sotto said.

“Nandiyan na ‘yung mga reporma. Iba na ngayon. Paiigtingin na lang natin at sisiguraduhin na damang dama ng bawat Pasigueño ang mas pinabubuting serbisyo ng pamahalaang lungsod,” he added.

(The reforms are there. It’s different now. We will just enhance them and ensure that every Pasigueño feels the improved services of the city government.)
