Earlier reports circulated saying Vic is vying for a post in the Senate or become the next mayor of Quezon City.

While he revealed that there have been times when they would talk about politics, the senator said that at the moment, his bother “doesn’t see any need for it.”

“Sa ngayon, although paminsan-minsan ay napapag-usapan namin sa kuwentuhan, wala siyang plano at wala kaming plano,” Senator Sotto said.

ABS-CBN News also tried to get the reaction of incumbent Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista, who will possibly be Vic’s opponent in the upcoming elections.

“I don’t think he’ll do that. Bossing, huwag naman. Narinig ko si Sen. Sotto na ‘One Sotto is enough in politics’ eh,” he said.
