Proclaimed Coco

Coco Pimentel is now officially called a Senator of The Republic of the Philippines after the proclamation yesterday by the Senate Electoral Tribunal.

The protest lasts for almost 4 years after former Senator Zubiri resigns from his place as a Senator to probably maintain his clean conscience to the allegation of witnesses that claims to have a cheating  arrangement that happen last 2004 and 2007 election.

In the deliberation of the members of the SET in Hotel Sofitel Coco was favored after Zubiri withdraws his counter election protest. It was the first time that the SET proclaims a new Senator after the other resign from its position.

Pimentel was the son of the former Seantor Aquilino "Nene" Pimentel Jr., that serves as a senate minority leader after his term ends.

Zubiri and Pimentel is on the 12th and 13th spot last 2007 senatorial election where Zubiri has 11,005,866 votes against 10,987,347 votes of Pimentel.

Senator Pimentel has only 1 year and 10 months service left before the 2013 election. Senator Pimentel will take his oath at Mati Davao del Sur from where he got his numerous votes.

I heard he'll start on monday. He needs to adjust and adapt to his new environment quickly. I hope he'll be a good senator.
