LP senators removed from leadership, commitee chairmanships on Pacman's motion

“I will not interpellate Senator Pacquiao. I second the motion,” Drilon said.


Senate President Pro Tempore Franklin Drilon has been removed from his leadership post.

Sen. Manny Pacquiao on Monday moved to announce that the Senate President Pro Tempore a vacant position and Drilon seconded the motion.

Drilon said, “I will not interpellate Senator Pacquiao. I second the motion."

Pacquiao nominated Senator Ralph Recto as the new Senate President Pro Tempore and majority of the senators voted in favor to Recto.


According to the report, Out of the 23 senators present, 17 senators voted for Recto as the Senate President Pro Tempore .

Meanwhile, after Drilon voted out, some other Liberal Party members were also replaced from their post. 

See below the list:
(LP) Franklin Drilon removed from Senate President Pro Tempore and was replaced by Ralph Recto
(AKBAYAN-LP) Risa Hontiveros removed from Committee on Health and replaced by was replaced JV Ejercito.
(LP) Francis Pangilinan removed from Committee on Agriculture and was replaced by Cynthia Villar.
(LP) Paolo Benigno “Bam” Aquino IV removed from Committee on Education and was replaced by Francis Escudero.
Sen. Aquino reacted to it. He said then maybe it's because the administration was trying to silence the opposition.

“If this is the price to pay for showing up at the streets of EDSA, for talking about democracy, if this is the price to pay, I’d gladly pay the price,” Aquino said.

The four Senators will now be joined the Senate minority.
