Accompanied by his celebrity parents Vic Sotto and Coney Reyes, Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto formally filed his certificate of candidacy at the Commission on Elections office in Pasig on Friday morning of October 1. The popular civil servant was seen touching base with his parents (who became a couple and eventually separated in the ‘80s) before his official filing.

Vico also shared the news and his plans for re-election next year. He wrote, “Nag-file na po ako kaagad ng COC para tapos na, di naman kailangan ng drama at suspense 


“Basta, panahon man ng pulitika o hindi, uunahin natin ang trabaho.

“Simula 2019, ang laki na ng pagbabagong naipakilala natin sa Pasig. Sa pagbubukas pa lang ng procurement/bidding, nasa 1 BILYON PISO KADA TAON ang binaba ng mga presyo ng mga binibili/pinapagawa ng LGU.

“Ngunit nahirapan tayo at maraming proyekto na naantala dahil sa pandemya. 9 months lang ako naging mayor sa normal na sitwasyon.

“Kaya sa susunod na term, magtulungan tayo para bawiin ang oras na ninakaw sa atin ng COVID-19.

“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.

“Ang hiling ko lang sa inyo, bigyan niyo ako ng mga kasanggang MAPAGKAKATIWALAAN natin. Yung hindi puwesto o pera ang habol, kundi yung magiging katuwang ko para paigtingin pa ang mga reporma't serbisyo ng pamahalaan.

“Sa Pasig, umaagos ang pag-asa. Patuloy tayong magsumikap para lalong palakasin ang pag-agos nito.

“P.S. pasensya na sa mga supporters na gustong sumama, hindi na ako nag-imbita... sumunod muna tayo sa Comelec health protocols…”

ABS-CBN News reporter Katrina Rodrigo also shared updates from the COC filing that same morning. 

Veteran actress Coney Reyes also shared an update on her Instagram account after accompanying her son to the filing. Last year, the celebrity mom shared how proud she was when her son was featured on the cover and became part of the People of the Year list of the lifestyle magazine People Asia.

She wrote, “In a huddle before our son, Vico filed his Certificate of Candidacy for re-election #2022 #PasigCityMayor #ThankYouLord #GlorytoGod #ProudParents #FullSupport.
