Who is the Senate top absentee?

SENATE TOP ABSENTEE – Senate Public Relations and Information Bureau (PRIB) data determined that this senator has the most number of absences.

May 2019 poll has already been concluded and it has determined the 12 senators to replace the previous 12 senators whose term will end on June 30, 2019.

Now, based on Rappler’s report, Senator Manny Pacquiao had the worst attendance record for senators in the 3rd and last session of the 17th Congress. From July 31, 2018 to June 4, 2019, and out 61 plenary sessions, the boxer turned senator only attended 49 out of it making 12 absences.

In making absences, there should only be two reasons of it – official missions in the Philippines and abroad, or plain absences. Pacquiao had no official missions but had 12 absences.

Meanwhile, Senator Francis Pangilinan only attended 47 plenary sessions. However, it was mostly because of official missions counted to 12 (10 local and two international), thus, recorded two absences. And Leila De Lima has no attendance at all as she is detained.

Here are the senators who attended the 61 plenary sessions based on report:

  1. Senate President Vicente Sotto III
  2. Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri
  3. Senate Minority Leader Franklin Drilon
  4. Senator Panfilo Lacson
  5. Senator Gregorio Honasan II
  6. Senator Joel Villanueva
