SENATE OF THE PHILIPPINES

The leader of the Senate is known as the Senate President. Senate Presidents have included:

From 1907 to 1916, the Philippine Commission served as the upper chamber of the colonial legislature. In 1916 the United States Congress created a new legislature system. Then Philippine Resident Commissioner Manuel Quezon ran for the Senate and became Senate President for the next 19 years (1916–1935).
