The full list of candidates vying for Senate seats was published by the Election Commission.

This year there are 63 candidates for the office of senator.

However, a total of 64 names are listed on the ballot as vice president Rodante Marcoleta only recently withdrew his candidacy for senator under the UniTeam coalition.

He made the announcement on April 28, months after the ballot was released by Comelec. Marcoleta said he left the race for the senator because he was late in the pre-election polls.

The elected senators have a six-year term. They can run for re-election after their term. However, they can only serve two consecutive terms.

For the 2022 election, voters are expected to elect 12 senators.

the Senate of the Philippines or the upper house of Congress is made up of 24 senators. They hold the legislative power.

“It also follows that the senator, having a national and not just a district college, will have a broader view of the country’s problems, instead of being limited by narrow points of view and interests. With this in mind, the Senate is likely to be more circumspect, or at least less impulsive, than the House of Representatives “, reads Article VI, Section 2.
