The House of Representatives is a vital institution in the Philippine government that embodies our vibrant democracy.Tasked with representing the voice of the people, the House is a forum for ideas, debate, and legislative action.
And every three years, the halls of Congress welcome new faces, eager to advance the interests of their constituents and the nation.
Against the dynamic backdrop of the 19th Congress of the House of Representatives, led by House Speaker Martin G. Romualdez, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our latest project, From Novice to Noteworthy.
