Bookmark to watch the interview with Senate President Vicente Sotto III at 8:00 PM

With an overwhelming majority vote, Vicente Sotto III became the 29th Senate President on Monday, May 21.

Sotto is the most senior member of the chamber, having been a senator for more than two decades. He has also served 9 Senate presidents.

Despite this, criticisms against Sotto abound.  Critics of Sotto, who began his career in the entertainment industry as part of comedy trio Tito, Vic & Joey, have called him a good-for-nothing senator, a plagiarist, and even a misogynist.

Rappler talks to Sotto about his plans for the Senate, his stand on critical issues, the longest noontime show Eat Bulaga, and how he handles criticisms. – Rappler.com
