In its announcement of Vico’s inclusion, People Asia dubbed the politician as the “The Prince of Pasig.”
“Shortly after he put an end to a 27-year-old political dynasty, the mayor of Pasig made national headlines for his city’s efficient and somewhat unconventional response to COVID-19. Beloved by the people and supported by a solid mandate, ‘The Prince of Pasig’ is as principled as they come,” wrote the magazine wrote on its social media page.
Aside from Vico, Vice President Leni Robredo and Trade and Industry Secretary Ramon Lopez were also hailed People’s Choice Awardees.
Others who also made it to the list are Eric Francia, Dr. Gerardo “Gap” Legaspi, Ana Marie Pamintuan, Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, Chaye Cabal-Revilla, Cesar Romero, Rep. Mikee Romero, and Tommanny Tan.
