• House welcomes 290th member


    The House of Representatives opened its doors to its 290th member on Wednesday afternoon.

    Rep. Joseph Stephen Paduano of Abang Lingkod party-list took his oath of office before Speaker Feliciano Belmonte Jr. inside the plenary hall.

    Paduano, a former leader of the Revolutionary Proletarian Army-Alex Boncayao Brigade, took his oath after Congress received a Commission on Elections Resolution and a Certificate of Proclamation deeming Paduano as a winner in the 2013 polls and thus is entitled to one seat in Congress.

    Paduano, whose party-list group represents farmers, will serve as a House member until June 30, 2016.
