2 returning Senators take oath before Chief Justice

SENATORS-elect Francis Pangilinan and Ralph Recto took their oath of office in the Supreme Court (SC) on Monday.

Pangilinan arrived with his wife, singer-actress Sharon Cuneta, and his children KC Concepcion, Frankie, Miel and Miguel.




He ranked eight in the recently concluded national and local elections, obtaining 15.955 million votes.

Pangilinan served the senate from 2001 to 2008. In May 2014, he was appointed Presidential Assistant for Food Security and Agricultural Modernization. In 2015, he resigned from his post to run anew for the Senate under the Liberal Party.

Recto, meanwhile, arrived with his wife Congresswoman-elect Vilma Santos, and his son Ryan Christian.




Recto ranked 11th in the May 9 elections. He received 14.271 million votes while his wife garnered 79,065 votes to be the 6th district representative of Batangas.

Pangilinan, Recto, and Santos took their oath administered by Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.




The actress, known as the "Star for all seasons" for her various roles in different films, is the first female representative of Batangas province.
