The tandem of Sen. Panfilo Lacson and Senate President Tito Sotto only needs two, and their senatorial lineup for the 2022 elections would be complete.
Initial Lacson-Sotto Senate slate
Sotto said the list could be reduced if Gordon and Gatchalian continue to run for president and vice president.
The Lacson-Sotto tandem targets to announce their magic 12 on July 28.
The platform of the Lacson-Sotto tandem is said to correct the spending of the country’s budget along with the local government.
What they will do to woo the voter will not be through song or dance.
“Wala kaming iniisip na entertainment eh. Our thinking is we will focus on issues. We’d like to elevate the type of campaigning for 2022 on a different level na,” said Sotto.
Lacson-Sotto tandem releases initial senatorial slate
On Wednesday, Senator Panfilo Lacson said that he and Senate President Vicente Sotto will continue to be the presidential and vice-presidential candidates in Election 2022.
“Nabasa na talampakan namin sa Tour of Luzon kaya tuloy-tuloy [na] lulusong na kami,” Lacson confirms with GMA News on Tuesday.
Sotto had earlier said he would run for vice president if Lacson could run with him as the presidential candidate.
“If Sen. Lacson decides to run for president, I will definitely be his running mate,” Sotto said.
“I am not in the habit of saying that I will not run, and then all of a sudden, I will file my certificate of candidacy. Let the other politicians do that. Not in our party,” he added.
Lacson earlier said that Sotto wants to focus on illegal drugs.
“Gusto niyang pagtulungan namin kasi pareho naming pangunahing advocacy ang peace and order at paglaban sa korapsyon,” said Lacson.
“Totoo ring kabisado niya ako sa pagka-seryoso na labanan ang korapsyon. Hindi minsan kaming tumutol na dalawa, even nagpasauli ng lobby money para sa pagpasa ng prangkisa na pinadala ng isang congressman sa Senate office niya,” he added.
