Sotto, meanwhile, clarified that he and Lacson wouldn’t identify themselves as opposition bets or pro-administration candidates.

We are the alternative. We’re not pro-administration. We’re not the opposition. We’re neutral… It’s up to the people to pick who they want, who they should vote for,” Sotto said, speaking partly in Filipino.

According to Sotto, their decision to run for president and vice president came from their “love of country”. He also noted that he and Lacson had 83 years in public service combined.

When asked about their programs, Sotto said that they would push for budget reform in order to ensure that national funds would trickle down to localities. He further pointed to the country’s ballooning debt as one of the problems the next leaders will have to address.

To summarize their programs, Sotto said that it will be anchored on ability, honesty, and courage — “kakayahan, katapatan, at katapangan”.
