During the 2019 midterm election, he ran against former President Erap Estrada for the mayoralty race. He won with a remarkable lead.

After his oath-taking as the new Mayor of the capital city of the Philippines, Isko started to implement drastic change which received different reactions.

Some agreed to his new policies, especially when he cleared the streets and sidewalks of Divisoria.

During a recent interview on Bandila with Julius Babao and Karen Davila, Mayor Isko Moreno shared a few words from his vocabulary, based on the report from PEP.
