MANILA — Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto has resigned from the political party Aksyon Demokratiko.
“Since I resigned from Aksyon Demokratiko last July, I never made any announcement. But since the media has now reported it, here is my resignation letter,” Sotto said in a Twitter post.
“I respected party decisions while I was a member, but for reasons stated in the letter, I decided to resign after the elections,” the mayor added.
Aksyon Demokratiko is led by former Manila Mayor Isko Moreno who ran but lost in May 2022 presidential elections.
In his resignation letter, Sotto clarified that “this is not about any particular person or candidate.”
“I maintain the highest respect for the party’s leadership and members. It is, in part, because of this respect that I decided to delay my resignation until after the 2022 National and Local Elections,” he said. (ai/mtvn)
