This Monday afternoon, the Congress in a joint session officially and respectfully proclaimed Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte, the new Philippine President and Ma. Leonor “Leni” Robredo as the new Philippine Vice President. However, as expected, Duterte did not show on the said proclamation and his lawyers attend the said event on his behalf as our new President is in Davao City.

The Senate and the House of Representatives sat as the National Board of Canvassers, convened at 3:10 in the afternoon and approved the joint canvassing committee report and resolution of both chambers on the proclamation of the duly elected winners.

Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III of the Senate canvassing panel thanked his colleagues for an “efficient and expeditious” canvassing of 167 certificates of canvass in a “record speed” of three days, which he said was the shortest in  Philippine history in his sponsorship speech. While the House Majority Floor Leader Mandaluyong Rep. Neptali Gonzales II delivered her sponsorship speech for the House of Representatives.
