Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri became emotional during his speech as he thanked his “leadership team” – Senate President Pro-Tempore Loren Legarda, Majority Leader Joel Villanueva, and Senators JV Ejercito, Nancy Binay, Sherwin Gatchalian, and Sonny Angara.

Zubiri addressed Dela Rosa, acknowledging his steadfast support, saying, “To Bato Dela Rosa, who stuck it out with me to the very end. I salute you sir.”

It is widely believed that Zubiri’s removal was influenced by his decision to authorize Senator Dela Rosa to investigate an alleged leaked drug operation report implicating President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. in drug-related activities.

In his farewell speech, Zubiri hinted that he lost his position because he may have unsettled certain factions and challenged the established authority by prioritizing the independence of his fellow senators.

Subsequently, Legarda and Villanueva resigned from their leadership positions, while Ejercito, Binay, and Angara relinquished their committee chairmanships to pave the way for new leadership.

Veteran Senator Francis “Chiz” Escudero was elected to take over Zubiri’s role as Senate President.
