Senate President Vicente Sotto III will not be seen in the long-running noontime show Eat Bulaga! following his election to the topmost position of the chamber.
“Wala, papaalam muna ako,” Sotto told reporters when asked on the matter.
“Hindi na siguro (kahit Thursday to Saturday), mag-uusap kami nina Vic at Joey saka ni Tony Tuviera,” he added.
Sotto usually acts as one of the hosts of Eat Bulaga! whenever there is no Senate session.
He admitted that he is feeling a little stressed with all the measures the chamber must pass into law.
“(I am) a little stressed because I am looking at the incoming measures that have to be tackled. Nakakalula. But siyempre we have to rely on our experience and the help of my colleagues, the Senate President will not be able to do it alone,” he said.
Sotto was elected as Senate President after 16 senators, including former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, signed a resolution calling for the chamber’s reorganization.
Prior to his election, Sotto served as majority floor leader.
