  • Pimentel steps down; Sotto heads Senate Senate Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III was elected as the new leader of the chamber, a move seen to address the dissatisfaction of senators over the leadership of Senate President Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III. Sen. Pimentel announced that he was stepping down from his post and thanked his colleagues from the majority bloc for having “tolerated me or stomached me in the past 22 months.” Fifteen out of 17 members of the majority bloc signed a resolution seeking the election of Sen. Sotto as Senate president that brought the issue into the open. “This is an example of a peaceful and willing transfer of power in the Senate,” he said when asked whether he felt betrayed by his colleagues in the majority bloc. Among the gripes mentioned by senators in recent interviews was that Pimentel was “too nice” and did not defend the chamber strongly enough from criticisms, including those coming from his partymate in PDP-Laban, Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.
