Mayor Vico Sotto promises to allow kisses after pandemic

Vico Sotto, mayor of Pasig City, hopes that the COVID-19 pandemic will soon end to grant this request from his constituents.

ABS-CBN reported Vico visited Barangay Rosario residents and supporters, where he was asked, "Mayor pa-kiss?"


The 32-year old politician laughed and said that he would let kisses after the pandemic was over.

"Pasensya na po, bawal pa ang kiss. Ipagdasal po, natin na mapapapos na an ang pandemiya-na ito," said the mayor in a video posted on Twitter by ABS-CBN journalist Kat Domingo.

He added in jest, "Ako hindi ako mahilig mangako. Kahit balikan niyo po yung sinasabi ko noong kampanya noong 2019, kahit 2016 hindi ninyo ako maririnig na nangangako. Pero pangako ko po sa inyo, pagkatapos ng pandemiya, kahit mag-kiss po tayo puwedeng-puwede."

The crowd cheered and clapped in his response.


Vico is running for re-election, and he's vying to be the head of the city.


Pasig City currently has 137 COVID-19 cases.
