MANILA, Philippines – It seems that Senators Jinggoy Estrada and Joseph Victor Ejercito have continued their personal fight on the legacy wall in the Senate because it can be seen that they did not keep aside even the “alphabetical” order of the photo.
Photos of current members of the 19th Congress can be seen on the legacy wall of the Senate in “alphabetical order.”
But the brothers on the father’s side, Estrada and Ejercito, can be noticed with Senator Sherwin “Win” Gatchalian and Christopher Lawrence “Bong” Go in the middle.
They are both children of former President Joseph Ejercito Estrada from different mothers.
Due to alphabetical order, Senator Juan Edgardo “Sonny” Angara led the group of photos in the light side, followed by Senator Nancy Binay, siblings Alan Peter and Pia Cayetano; Ronald Dela Rosa, Francis “Chiz” Escudero, Estrada, Gatchalian, Go, Ejercito, and Mark Villar.
Most notable were Senate President Pro-Tempore Loren Legarda, Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri and Senate Majority Leader Joel Villanueva. He also signed Senate Minority Leader Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III.
The legacy wall was built by Senator Risa Hontiveros and followed by Senators Lito Lapid, Imee Marcos, Robin Padilla, Grace Poe, Ramon Revilla Jr. and Francis Tolentino. Raffy Tulfo and Cynthia Villar.
A staff member of the Public Relation and Information Bureau explained that Ejercito and Villar are side by side in the leadership of the Senate because they are both deputy majority leaders like Pimentel who is the minority leader.
In the brief ceremony held, Zubiri thanked former senators, former Senate President Franklin Drilon and Sen. Francisco “Kit” Tatad.
Zubiri and Legarda, Gatchalian, Ejercito, Revilla, Tolentino, Villanueva, Go, Tulfo and Padilla will also attend the meeting.
The mural measures 19.97 meters x 3.13 meters and is placed on the second floor of the Senate as part of the month-long celebration of the Senate’s 106th Anniversary.
“It is more than a legacy, the wall stands as a testament to the fine institution itself. I just want to say that this wall reminds us that we must build on the rich legacy of the Senate and all the accomplishment of the legislators who have come before us and have paved the way forward for the country through their landmark legislation…. This wall also celebrates the power of the people, people who chose us to work for them and to advocate for them in these halls,” ayon kay Zubiri. Ernie Reyes
