INCOMING lawmakers of the 15th Congress, including boxing icon Manny Pacquiao, will undergo an orientation seminar Thursday morning at the House of Representatives.
More than 100 new House members, including notable celebrities Lani Mercado Revilla (Cavite, second district) and Lucy Torres Gomez (Leyte, fourth district), are expected to attend the seminar on legislative procedures.
Representative Rachel "Cutie" Del Mar (Cebu City, north district) will also attend the event to be held at the plenary hall of the Batasan Building.
Representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (Pampanga, second district) meanwhile is not expected to show up in the orientation since she has already served as a member of the Senate from 1992 to 1998.
Gina De Venecia (Pangasinan, fourth district), wife of former House Speaker Jose, has also been given an invitation to attend.
Other participants also include Sergio Apostol (Leyte, Second District), Maria Carmen Apsay (Compostella Valley, first district), Maria Jocelyn Bernos (Abra, lone district), Jose Carlos Cari (Leyte, fifth district), Maximo Dalog (Mountain Province, lone district), Mylene Garcia (Davao City, second district), and Jerry Trenas (Iloilo City, lone district).
