The legislature in any society performs the important function of deliberating policies for the people and passing them in the form of statutes. Although the Philippine Legislature was organized only in 1916, it had deep roots in the past.

Long before the Spanish rulers came to the Philippines, the people in their barangays were already governed by a set of rules by their chief. Over the long span of Spanish and American rule, various forms of legislative structures were set up to perpetuate the colonial rulers’ desire to rule the country.

Of Gratitude and Productiveness by Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III

My esteemed colleagues, the Senate of the 17th Congress is a tale of two Senate Presidents. I was preceded by the young bar topnotcher and politically—pedigreed Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III whose term commenced in July 2016. It was historic and the first time that a father-and-son team served as Senate Presidents. I even served for his father. He was as good as his father.

SPONSORSHIP SPEECH ON SRN 312: RESOLUTION EXPRESSING THE SENSE OF THE SENATE FOR THE PRESIDENT TO RECONSIDER HIS PLAN TO UNILATERALLY WITHDRAW FROM THE VISITING FORCES AGREEMENT WITH THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
February 2020
 

Mr. President, dear colleagues, 

Destiny has located our islands in the easternmost fringes of the Asian mainland dominated by China. Early land bridges are said to have connected us with our neighbors in Asia and more particularly, Southeast Asia. This accounts for the Asian features of our physique and the presence of Chinese enclaves in our communities. The Muslim faith came to our shores by way of Southeast Asia.
