MANILA, Philippines — Senator Vicente Sotto III said on Wednesday that megastar singer-actress Sharon Cuneta would be good as mayor of Pasay City.
Sotto, who helped to catapult Cuneta into stardom, said on Wednesday: “Kung ako ang tatanungin, sapagkat ako ang naghubog, ako ang nag imbento ng showbiz career nya, puwede ko ring iimbento ang political career nya kung gusto nya, I could also invent her political career, if she wanted to.)”
“Magiging magaling na mayor ng Pasay yun.” (She would make a very good mayor of Pasay.),” the senator, who is Cuneta’s uncle, added.
Cuneta’s late father, Pablo, held the position of Pasay City Mayor for many years.
Sotto made it clear, though, that this was merely his own personal opinion and that he had not yet broached the matter to Cuneta.
“Hindi n’ya alam. Ako lang,” the senator said. (She doesn’t know about it. This is just me talking.),” he said.
