Taguig Councilor Gigi Valenzuela de Mesa has underscored the importance of using the mace during sessions of the city council.

De Mesa discussed the use of the mace before her colleagues during the session on Tuesday.

“The MACE represents the power and authority of the Sangguniang Panlungsod,” she said.

She said that at the start of every session, the sergeant-at-arms or mace custodian should carry the symbol on his right shoulder when entering the session hall, followed by the Vice Mayor or presiding officer.

The mace should then be set on the designated area.

“The presence of mace would mean that session is in official order,” she said.
