It has been reported that People’s Champ, Senator Manny Pacquiao was appointed as chairman of Senate Chamber’s Committee on Ethics last Tuesday, September 18.
The new role seeks to hear the complaints of propriety against the people in the Senate as reported by GMA News. It also includes matters such as rights, conduct, safety, integrity, reputation, and privileges.
KAMI has learned that majority leader Juan Miguel Zubiri officiated the said movement in replacement of Senate President Vicente “Tito” Sotto III.
“With the permission of the body, we move to elect Senator Manny Pacquiao as chairman of the committee on ethics, vice Senate President Tito Sotto,” Zubiri said.
There was no any objection. Hence, everyone is expecting for the Senate President to approve and formalize the motion.
Sotto was a former chair of Ethics, back when Senator Aquilino Pimentel III was the Senate President. However, later on, when Sotto became Senate President, he wanted Pimentel to replace him as chairman.
Senator Sherwin Gatchalian will be replacing Pacquiao as member of the committee. Along with other members, Senator Panfilo Lacson, Senator Gregorio Honasan II, Senator Grace Poe, Senator Risa Hontiveros, and Senator Paolo “Bam” Benigno Aquino IV.
As previously reported by KAMI, Manny Pacquiao is set to have a rematch with Floyd Mayweather Jr. as announced by the latter on his social media account.
Last 2016 elections, Manny Pacquiao has won a seat in the Senate. A part of his campaign was to bring back the Capital Punishment in our country or the death penalty.
