Senator Christopher “Bong” Go on Tuesday expressed hope the next Senate president will promote the continuity of the good programs and initiatives by the Duterte administration by passing measures that prioritize the welfare of struggling Filipinos, particularly in light of the ongoing pandemic.

The senator said the next Senate president must be someone who is respected by the Filipino people and who will maintain that respect for the Senate.

In the event of a supermajority, Go reassured the public that the Senate shall remain independent. He also told Filipinos that he will remain a “quietly working senator.”

Asked if he has been solicited for support by a fellow senator running for Senate president, Go responded that it is unavoidable. However, he said that no final decision will be made until the opening of the next Senate session.

When asked if he still wants to chair the Senate Health Committee, Go replied that he would be pleased to serve his country wherever he may be useful and helpful.

Wherever I might be of help I’m willing to accept the challenge. I will respect the decision of the majority and will just work for the interest of every Filipino,” he said.
