LAPU-LAPU CITY, Cebu — Showing his unorthodox and non-traditional politics, Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso chose cardiologist and internist Dr. Willie Ong as his vice-presidential running mate in the 2022 elections.

Although Ong is not a “trapo” (traditional politician) or identified with any political dynasty that has machinery but
in 2019 when he ran for senator, he placed 18th overall.

Ong got the second-highest number of overseas votes for senator.

The Moreno-Ong tandem ushers a new brand of politics that is really down-to-earth, pragmatic, and idealist, some political observers said. (ai/mtvn)
