Senate Majority Leader Tito Sotto recently made a candid endorsement of Senator Panfilo Lacson as potential successor of President Duterte.

Sotto said Lacson could be an “exciting” president, brushing aside his colleague’s observation that Duterte could be a hard act to follow.

“Are you sure partner? Baka exciting ka din! @iampinglacson,” Sotto tweeted.

Lacson earlier said whoever succeeds Duterte might be “boring” especially since he made unprecedented decisions from, compelling billionare Lucio Tan to pay unpaid taxes to closing down Boracay for rehabilitation. The former police chief run for president in 2004, and finished third of the vote.

“He made a tycoon pay his P6B unpaid dues sans court order; he made the Rufinos and Prietos vacate the Mile Long property; he made Mighty Corp pay P30B; he is closing the entire Boracay island; he reappoints every retiring PNP/AFP chief. Whoever succeeds him will be boring,” Lacson tweeted.
