“A senator needs at least 13 votes — or the majority of the 24-member chamber — to secure the Senate presidency.
Pangilinan has the sure support of fellow LP members Senators Franklin Drilon, Teofisto Guingona III, and Ralph Recto. He also claims to have the support of Enrile, Senate Pro Tempore Jose “Jinggoy” Estrada, and detained Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV.
On the other hand, Villar has the votes of Senators Alan Peter Cayetano, Pilar Juliana Cayetano, Miriam Defensor Santiago, Joker Arroyo, and Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., who all ran under NP.
Yet to formally express their support behind a particular candidate are Sen. Edgardo Angara, Honasan, Sotto, Loren Legarda, Lito Lapid, Ramon Bong Revilla, and Juan Miguel Zubiri.”
An indecisive Senate cannot unite itself for the sake of common good. Instead, senators vacillate between who to support and who to drop like a hot tamale. But what’s new? It’s not like the nation they all promised to serve is important or anything, right?
