MANILA, Philippines — Senator Sonny Angara is considering taking a break from politics after his second term in the Senate ends next year.

Though he has no definite plans yet now, Angara admitted being a “little tired of political life.”


“It’s a little tiring. Parang nabu-burnout ka din e (You get burned out too),”  he said at a regular Kapihan sa Senado on Thursday.


“I don’t think I will be running for an elective position. Pahinga muna” added the senator, who was first elected in the Senate in 2013.

But later, Angara said, in jest: “Gusto kong maging congressman para matanggal yung Senado.”

(I want to become a congressman to abolish the Senate.)

The Senate and the House of Representatives have been at loggerheads on how to amend the 1987 Constitution.

Suspecting that the House was behind the controversial people’s initiative, the Senate initiated its own Cha-cha bid by filing a resolution seeking changes to specific economic provisions of the 1987 Constitution.

Angara is leading the Cha-cha discussion in the Senate as head of the subcommittee on constitutional amendments.
