WINNING SENATORS – The newly elected Senators already mentioned their picks of which committee in the Senate did they want to manage.
Yesterday, the proclamation was made for the winning senatorial candidates. They also took an oath as they transitioned into becoming officially elected senators.
Long before they assumed positions, the senators already revealed their targeted positions in the senate committees.
In total, there are 21 committees in the Senate that awaits the 12 newly elected senators. These committees will need chairpersons.
During the day of the proclamation, winning senators Grace Poe, Sonny Angara, Bong Go and Imee Marcos disclosed their targeted Senate panels that they want to lead.
