LOOK: Senators-elect do Duterte fist bump except Poe, Binay
MANILA, Philippines — All newly-elected senators, except for senators Grace Poe and Nancy Binay, made President Rodrigo Duterte’s signature fist bump during the proclamation of winning senators on Wednesday.
During a photo op immediately after the proclamation at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC), newly-elected senators Cynthia Villar, Christopher “Bong” Go, Pia Cayetano, Bato dela Rosa, Sonny Angara, Lito Lapid, Imee Marcos, Francis Tolentino, Koko Pimentel, Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. made the “Duterte fist bump.”
Twelve new senators were proclaimed at the PICC a week after the May 13 polls.
During the 90-day campaign period, Poe ran as an independent candidate while Binay ran under the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA), while the rest, except for Lito Lapid, were backed by the administration. (Editor: Cenon B. Bibe Jr.)
