The next few photos were taken during the morning of the State of the Nation Address of President Aquino. As Congress opened that morning of the 4th Monday of July, both the House of Representatives and the Senate elected their respective leaders, as dictated by protocol. After they elect and choose their leader, they would have to transmit to Malacanang that they've already chosen the Speaker of the House and Senate President respectively, and would then invite the President for his/her address.
That morning the majority backing the Speakership of Representative Feliciano R. Belmonte, Jr. had their breakfast and orientation about the conduct of the opening of the 15th Congress, and how they would elect the Speaker. Everything went smoothly. :) Congratulations SB - Speaker Belmonte! :)
