List of Senators favor, unfavor for martial law in Mindanao

There are fifteen senators expressed support to President Rodrigo Duterte's declaration of martial law in Mindanao after the Marawi clash.


On Monday, 15 out of the 23 senators signed the Senate Resolution 388 in support of Duterte's martial law declaration. All of them belong to the majority bloc.

The resolution said, “The acts committed by the Maute group are an open attempt to remove from the allegiance to the Philippine Government the part of Mindanao and deprive the Chief Executive of its powers and prerogatives to enforce laws of the land and to maintain public order and safety in Mindanao, hence constitutes the crime of rebellion.

“The Senate finds the issuance of Proclamation No. 216 to be satisfactory, constitutional and in accordance with the law. The Senate hereby supports fully Proclamation No. 216 and finds no compelling reason to revoke the same."

Here are the names of senators who voted "Yes":
  • Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III
  • Senate President Pro Tempore Ralph Recto
  • Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III
  • Sen. Sonny Angara
  • Sen. Nancy Binay
  • Sen. JV Ejercito
  • Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian
  • Sen. Richard Gordon
  • Sen. Gringo Honasan
  • Sen. Panfilo Lacson
  • Sen. Loren Legarda
  • Sen. Manny Pacquiao
  • Sen. Joel Villanueva
  • Sen. Cynthia Villar
  • Sen. Miguel Zubiri
Meanwhile, Senate minority bloc opposed the martial law and filed a resolution calling for a joint session on martial law.

Here's the list of senators who voted "No":
  • Sen. Francis Pangilinan
  • Sen. Franklin Drilon
  • Sen. Bam Aquino
  • Sen. Leila De Lima
  • Sen. Risa Hontiveros
  • Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV
  • Sen. Grace Poe
  • Sen. Francis Escudero
The minority bloc signed Senate Resolution No. 350 to determine the “constitutional and factual validity” of Proclamation No. 216 declaring martial law in Mindanao.

Also, Poe said that she did not object the martial law but she did not agree on the resolution.

“I will not renege on my duty in striking a balance between ensuring the safety of our kababayans in Marawi, and in ensuring that the constitutional safeguards against abuses are followed,” Poe said.
