Mayor Vico Sotto Says Political Rallies Not Allowed in Pasig City Hall, Quadrangle
MAYOR VICO SOTTO – The Pasig Mayor clarified the venues in the city that are open for political campaign rallies.
Currently, political campaign rallies are taking place daily as the May 2022 Election is drawing near. The candidates for the national election are on a double-time to reach as many Filipinos as they can before the election campaign period is over.
Several previous political rallies of some candidates for president in the upcoming election gathered a huge number of people. The grand rallies of the Leni-Kiko tandem in Iloilo, Cavite, Negros Occidental, and Bulacan gathered thousands of people.
The Leni-Kiko tandem has yet to campaign in Pasig City. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto said that political rallies are not allowed in Pasig City Hall and quadrangle. The Mayor stressed that campaign organizers were already told to hold their campaign events in plazas or open streets.
Pasig City has two (2) public plazas – Rizal and Bonifacio. He stressed that the plazas and the open streets are the biggest open areas for political rallies. According to him, even mayors who would ask to hold a grand rally in the quadrangle or the Pasig City Hall premises will not be allowed.
Amid confusing claims going around that the Leni-Kiko tandem will hold their grand rally in PhilSports Arena and then the city hall quadrangle, the spokesperson of Vice Pres. Robredo, Atty. Barry Gutierrez, clarified that such information is not from the campaign team. Based on the report, he stressed that there was no prior material that contained the venue.
According to Gutierrez, they stated that the venue is TBA (To Be Announced). He stressed that the volunteers of the Vice President who are organizing her rally in Pasig are already coordinating with the LGU for the venue.
