In an interview in Super Radyo dzBB, Senator Imee believed that the next Senate President should be from the UniTeam senatorial slate in order to have a strong majority with 13 dependable votes.

Dapat ganoon sana kasi sa dami ng problema natin dapat mabilis tayo at malakas ang dating ng mga batas na kinakailangan natin,” she said.

She earlier said that she wasn’t seeking the Senate presidency or any other leadership position in the 19th Congress. But Senator Sonny Angara recently disclosed that Senator Imee and Senator-elect Loren Legarda expressed interest in the position of Senate president pro tempore.

So far, Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, Senator Sherwin Gatchalian, Senator Cynthia Villar, and Senator-elect Francis Escudero were the senators reportedly vying for the Senate’s top post. Senator Imee was reportedly supporting Senator Villar’s Senate presidency bid.

When asked about possible term sharing of the Senate presidency, Senator Imee stressed that everything was “on the table”.

According to her, all candidates need to be open-minded, must sacrifice, compromise, and have some level of negotiation. She further emphasized that for Senate committee chairmanships, senators must be willing to compromise because they need to be united.

Earlier, Senator Angara said that Senator Imee was also seeking the Senate Finance Committee chairmanship, which he currently chairs.
