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.

Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III

Valedictory Speech
June 4, 2019
3rd Regular Session, 17th Congress

My esteemed colleagues, the Senate of the 17th Congress is a tale of two Senate Presidents. I was preceded by the young bar top-notcher 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, I can assure you that, together with eight other senate presidents that I have served. On my part, my tenure as Senate President began on May 21, 2018 up to the present.
