Senator Tito Sotto says he’s thinking of quitting as Senate majority leader, cites heavy workload

Cathy Yamsuan of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III "is thinking of quitting as majority leader in the next Congress."

Cathy Yamsuan of the Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that Senator Vicente "Tito" Sotto III "is thinking of quitting as majority leader in the next Congress." According to the report, "Sotto said the main problem is that he works harder than the other senators because being majority leader is like supervising traffic during Senate sessions. He added said the work of majority leader was not commensurate to the glamor or the power associated with the position."

 

The report quoted Sotto, who said, "You have to work harder than the rest.  Be more conscientious, master the art of compromise but still take a lot of criticism." Sotto also disclosed that his "civilian job" as TV host of Eat Bulaga! "helps in a way" and that he "injects humor in Senate debates so he could amuse himself."

 

The report noted that Sotto also quipped: "I'm not saying I'm resigning.  But right now, I have an 80 percent chance of quitting as majority leader."
