0 258

Senatorial candidates Ronald “Bato” Dela Rosa, Bong Go and Francis Tolentino may not be officially proclaimed winners yet, but they’re already certain who they want to lead the Senate when they arrive there in July.

Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III said he has gotten the support of the three administration candidates amid talk of a possible challenge to his leadership at the start of the 18th Congress.

He said Senator Manny Pacquiao talked to him recently to assure him of Dela Rosa, Go and Tolentino’s backing.

“Kausap daw niya, and okay daw sila sa present leadership. Yun ang sabi ni Manny sa akin,” Sotto said.

Should Sotto remain the Senate President, he said Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri will still remain the Majority Leader while Senator Franklin Drilon will lead the minority bloc.

Senators will hold a caucus at the resumption of sessions Monday (May 20) to discuss internal matters.
