Statement of Senator Nancy Binay on the opening of the 17th Congress

I am happy that Mindanao is now fully represented in the highest level of leadership in our country today, from Malacanang to the Congress, having Senator Aquilino Pimentel III and Congressman Pantaleon Alvarez as Senate President and Speaker of the House of Representatives, respectively.

I am certain that the interests and concerns of Mindanao will now be given focus and priority, especially the peace process.

I expect that the Administration will also prioritize the passage of inclusive policies that will give comfort to majority of Filipinos, such as the exemption from income taxes of those who are earning P30,000 and below.

Sen. Pimentel can be assured that he has my support and I will work towards the fulfilment of President Rodrigo Duterte's legislative agenda.
