Senator-elect Leila de Lima explained her absence in the orientation for incoming senators on Monday, saying she already received a one-on-one briefing ahead of her colleagues.

Only Senators Joel Villanueva, Risa Hontiveros and Sherwin Gatchalian showed up at the briefing conducted in the chamber by the Senate Secretariat.

“I have a sked conflict. So, I just sent a team headed by my CoS (chief of staff),” de Lima said in a text message.

“I was previously briefed, one-on-one, by a Senate official,” she added.

The neophyte senators and their staff were briefed about the legislative work in the chamber, including maintenance, security and their salaries.
