MANILA, Philippines — Speaker Ferdinand Martin Romualdez is looking forward the House of Representatives’  partnership with the upper chamber after Sen. Francis Escudero was elected Senate President on Monday.

Romualdez in a statement congratulated Escudero, saying that the new Senate President has been a respected figure in the political landscape.


Escudero was elected earlier as Senate President having no other members being nominated, replacing Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri.


“In light of recent developments in the Senate, I would like to extend my congratulations to Senator Chiz Escudero on his ascension to the position of Senate President. Senator Escudero has long been a respected figure in our political landscape, known for his dedication, integrity, and commitment to the Filipino people,” Romualdez said.

“As we move forward, I am optimistic about the new partnership between the Senate and the House of Representatives. Our nation faces numerous challenges and opportunities, and it is through unity and collaboration that we can effectively address these and work towards a brighter future for all Filipinos,” he added.

Romualdez also thanked Zubiri for his service, saying that the former Senate president’s work contributed to legislative achievements.

“I would also like to express my heartfelt appreciation to Senator Juan Miguel ‘Migz’ Zubiri for his outstanding service and leadership as Senate President. Senator Zubiri’s dedication and hard work have significantly contributed to our legislative achievements and the advancement of our nation. His efforts in fostering a spirit of cooperation within the Senate have been invaluable,” Romualdez said.

The shakeup in the Senate comes after months of speculation about a possible coup, and the love-hate relationship between the House and the Senate.

In the first quarter of 2024, the House and the Senate were locked in a verbal spat due to charter change proposals.
