The legislature in any society performs the important function of deliberating policies for the people and passing them in the form of statutes. Although the Philippine Legislature was organized only in 1916, it had deep roots in the past.

Long before the Spanish rulers came to the Philippines, the people in their barangays were already governed by a set of rules by their chief. Over the long span of Spanish and American rule, various forms of legislative structures were set up to perpetuate the colonial rulers’ desire to rule the country.

Speech of Senate President Vicente C. Sotto III
Senate of the Philippines, Pasay City
21 May 2018

In 1988, I was elected as Vice Mayor of Quezon City and became the presiding officer of its Council. Inherent in the position is being the chairman of the Anti-Drug Abuse Council which inflamed in me my advocacy against illegal drugs.

Lumipas ang tatlong dekada, at tinitiyak ko sa inyo, na hindi ko inaasahan ang mga pangyayari sa araw na ito. Ni sa panaginip ay hindi sumagi sa aking isipan na ako ay maluluklok bilang Pangulo ng Senado.
