Opposition senators like Senator Risa Hontiveros vows and continue work for an independent senate.
“We will continue to strive for an independent Senate and introduce electoral reforms, particularly in the partylist system and for campaign finance reform,” Hontiveros said.
Hontiveros lectures the media that the Senate acts as the public’s “last line of defense within the government against continuing attempts to undermine our democracy and attack our human rights.”

She added: “We will persevere... If anything, we will work harder, strive further and serve better.”

Of the existing minority bloc, Senator Antonio Trillanes IV will end his term on June 30, and he will be joined by re-electionist senator Bam Aquino who fails to make it to the Magic 12 this election.
