Why the Senate holds executive sessions: In her manifestation during Tuesday's session, Senator Pia Cayetano said executive sessions are held so that the chamber can get the views of individual senators, and to allow them to raise questions or concerns that they prefer not to express in public. She said the chamber's decisions on sensitive matters will be based on the consensus of its members, as discussed in plenary and in the executive session.
