MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – The last four remaining Philippine Opposition Senators have said their goodbyes, notwithstanding the fact that their terms of office have not yet expired.
Kiko Pangilinan, Franklin Drilon, Risa Hontiveros and the incarcerated Leila De Lima publicly bowed out of their positions today.
Speaking on behalf of the foursome, Risa Hontiveros said, “It pains us to have to vacate our Sentorial posts in the 17th Congress. We have no choice.”
”But we’ll be back in the 18th Congress.” Hontiveros quickly added.
