Sharon announced that she is throwing her full support for her brother, Chet Cuneta, who wants to continue the legacy of their late father, Pablo, in Pasay City.

Pablo Cuneta was mayor of Pasay City for more than 41 years – from December 30, 1951 – December 30, 1967, from December 30, 1971 – March 26, 1986 and from February 2, 1988 – June 30, 1998.

In addition, their mother, Elaine Cuneta, also served as congresswoman of Pasay for several years.

Chet Cuneta is running in the political party of President Rodrigo Duterte, in direct conflict with Sharon’s husband, Senator Kiko Pangilinan, who is one of the pillars of the Liberal Party.

“We may not see eye to eye with how we regard the current administration but I respect his decision to run for Pasay City mayor as part of the administration ticket. I wish him well,” said Pangilinan in a statement.
