Lacson, Sotto tandem to run in Election 2022


Senator Panfilo Lacson and Senate President Vicente Sotto will run in Eleksyon 2022, according to Lacson, who confirmed the news on Tuesday evening. Sotto stated in June that if Lacson, a three-term senator and former PNP chief, ran for president, he would "absolutely" be his running partner.

"Nabasa na talampakan namin sa Tour of Luzon kaya tuluy-tuloy lulusong na kami," Lacson said on GMA News.


Over the last several days, Lacson and Sotto have met with a number of municipal leaders throughout Luzon. Lacson has also stated that if Sotto runs for president, it is already "written in stone" that he will be his running partner.


According to Sotto, the purpose of the visit is to obtain information on the state of local government units, check the COVID-19 situation in various areas, and get ideas for the country's post-COVID-19 recovery plan.


According to a recent Pulse Asia poll, 4% of Filipinos said they would vote for Lacson for president, while 10% said they would vote for Sotto. Sotto was ranked third among the preferred vice presidential candidates in the upcoming elections, behind Manila Mayor Isko Moreno and Davao City Mayor Sara Duterte.
