Senator Chiz Escudero is new Senate president; Zubiri resigns

Sen. Francis “Chiz” Escudero is the new Senate president, replacing Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri after the later resigned from his post.

Wife Heart Evangelista was with Chiz when he took his oath.

“My hats off to you, Senate President Zubiri. I salute you and I hope I will make you proud. You especially among all our other colleagues and hopefully, you will not leave my side whenever I ask for guidance, whenever I ask for help and whenever I ask for your wisdom,” Senator Chiz said.

“Mas malayo po at mas marami kayong alam sa akin lalo na bilang taga-pangulo ng Senado,” he added.

Zubiri said he was quitting as Senate president because “I failed to follow instructions from the powers that be. As simple as that.”
