Oyo Sotto, brother Vico do not quarrel over opposing presidential bets

May 5, 2016
<p>Vico Sotto says the fact that he and his older brother Oyo Sotto have different presidential bets is a non-issue. "Hindi ko gusto ang presidente niya, nirerespeto ni Kuya Oyo ang opinyon ko, hindi kami nag-aaway nang dahil sa pulitika. Passionate siya

Pasig City Council candidate Vico Sotto was filled with gratitude towards elder half-brother Oyo Sotto for joining the former’s house-to-house campaign in Pasig City earlier this week.

The younger Sotto said, “Thank you to my super supportive Kuya, @osotto.”  

Vico is the son of Vic Sotto to ex-girlfriend Coney Reyes, while Oyo is the comedian-TV host’s son to ex-wife Dina Bonnevie.

On his Instagram post last Tuesday, May 3, Vico also shared that he and Oyo don’t let their political differences get in the way of their relationship as brothers.

Vico is running as councilor under Team Galing at Puso, whose standard bearer happens to be Grace Poe.

On the other hand, Oyo has been very vocal of his voluntary support for Davao City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte.

Vico related in his post, “Maibang topic lang... kahit na hindi ko gusto ang presidente niya, nirerespeto ni Kuya Oyo ang opinyon ko, hindi kami nag-aaway nang dahil sa pulitika.

“Passionate siya pero kaya niyang makipag-usap ng maayos kahit na tungkol sa kritisimo laban sa kandidato niya.

“Tularan po natin si Kuya Oyo.

“Try to convince people for your candidate/s, pero hindi dahil iba ang opinyon ng isang tao ay nangangahulugang siya ay bobo o tanga.”

The aspiring public servant was clearly referring to some overzealous netizens who resort to spreading negative feedback against fellow social media users with opposing bets.

Vico capped off his message with a reminder to fellow Filipinos about exercising freedom of speech in a respectful manner.

He wrote in the latter post of his Instagram post, "Makikita natin sa kasaysayan na ang DEMOKRASYA [kapag tunay at inclusive] ang form of government kung saan pinaka-consistent ang pag-unlad ng isang bayan.

“Sa isang demokratikong sistema, hindi po posible na lahat ay mag-agree.

“Ang mahalaga ay nirerespeto natin ang isa't isa, marunong tayong makinig kahit na hindi tayo sumasang-ayon, at lahat tayo ay may iniaambag para sa ikabubuti ng ating Pilipinas.”

Thank you to my super supportive Kuya, @osotto for joining us in yesterday's house to house! Maibang topic lang... kahit na hindi ko gusto ang presidente niya, nirerespeto ni Kuya Oyo ang opinyon ko, hindi kami nagaaway nang dahil sa pulitika. Passionate siya pero kaya niyang makipagusap ng maayos kahit na tungkol sa kritisimo laban sa kandidato niya. Tularan po natin si Kuya Oyo. Try to convince people for your candidate/s, pero hindi dahil iba ang opinyon ng isang tao ay nangangahulugang siya ay bobo o tanga.
