First couple holds gathering for senators and their spouses

President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. recently gathered with several senators for a photo, which was shared on social media following the ousting of former Senate President Juan Miguel Zubiri.

The event, posted by First Lady Liza Araneta-Marcos on Instagram, included the President and select senators with their spouses. Notably absent from the picture were Zubiri and some of his allies in the Senate.

Newly-instated Senate President Francis Escudero, Senate President Pro Tempore Jinggoy Estrada, and Senate Majority Leader Francis Tolentino were among those in attendance. Other senators present included Robin Padilla, Alan Cayetano, and Grace Poe.

The gathering occurred after Zubiri’s surprising ousting from the Senate, leading to his resignation and the swift appointment of Escudero as the new Senate President. Despite the absence of certain senators, the event showcased a mix of political figures engaging in social activities.

It remains to be seen how these recent developments will impact the dynamics within the Senate and the broader political landscape in the Philippines.
