Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto on Thursday gave assurance that indigent families, particularly those living in danger zones, are the priority in the local government’s proposed housing project.

In a Facebook post, Sotto said while he did not promise all homeless families in the city will have houses, he vowed not to relocate them if the project falls short of the goal.

“I never promised everyone will have a house of his own. That is not possible at this time. But I promised there will be no relocation and demolition of homes in the absence of a relocation site and an orderly system of transfer. The choice of beneficiaries will also be fair,” Sotto said in Filipino.

“The priority for our soon-to-rise socialized housing sites will be those who are now living in danger zones. For example, those in the floodway. It is our goal to give them safe and decent houses where they may prosper in the future. This project will continue even with the pandemic,” he added.

On Sunday, Sotto visited one of the socialized housing sites in Barangay Rosario.
He noted thousands of families will be relocated to safer sites but in a just and humane process. Let us learn from the past. The relocation will happen when the water and electricity utilities are in place, the school and the hospital is constructed and people are able to pursue their livelihood,” he said.

Hindi po ako kailanman nangako na lahat ay mabibigyan ng pabahay – hindi posible yun sa ngayon. Ang pinangako ko po, "...

Sotto visited the previous administration’s Pabahay ng Pasig project whose terms include penalties for late payments if three percent a month compounded.

Sotto has asked his advisers to study the housing program and make recommendations.
