The Philippine senate is composed of 24 senators who are elected by the legally registered voters of the Philippines. Senators are elected to a six year term, half the senators are elected every 3 years. This process insures that the Senate maintains a full membership.
The Senate of the Philippines is the upper chamber of the bicameral legislature of the Philippines, the Congress of the Philippines. The Senate is the only body that can authorize the ratification of treaties.
- The barangay system is what makes the Philippines, the community oriented country of the world. The core LGU (Local Government Unit) of the Philippines is the barangay. Each barangay has its Chairman (captain) and council who are elected into office every three years by popular vote of the community registered voters. Take the time to read the 130 pages of: The Local Government Code of The Philippines
- Help update the webpage of the barangay you grew up in. Each page that we provide is an interactive page whereby any registered user may edit or update.
- If you do not wish to register, you may still update your barangay via email to: email@example.com or Via Facebook by posting your updates or pictures to the OBI Facebook Page
Why doesn't the government of the Philippines promote the barangays?
- The COMELEC as of November 28, 2015 still does not have all the barangay election results posted.
- The DOT (Department of Tourism), seldom mentions the name of the barangay as to where the resorts or popular landmarks are.
- The LTO - In the the section of driver's license where it says ADDRESS: (Street NO. City/Municipality, Province). It does not ask for the barangay.
- Most business addresses in urban areas simply put the street number and name, City/Municipality, Province and zipcode. The barangay name is omitted. Yet to acquire or renew the business license, it is required that a barangay clearance must be acquired first.
- Even the president of the Philippines intentionally or unintentionally ignores the barangay. The Malacañang palace is located within a barangay. The barangay of Barangay 643, San Miguel, Manila. But the official address of Malacañang does not mention the name of Barangay 643, it only shows this:
Current Address shows:
- 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, San Miguel
- Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
The address should be this:
- 1000 Jose P Laurel Sr, Barangay 643, San Miguel
- Manila, Metro Manila, Philippines
Why does the Philippine government continue to make incorrect reports?
- NSCB - National Coordination and Statistical Board reports incorrectly that Zamboanga City is part of the province of Zamboanga del Sur.
- The COMELEC: Also reports that Zamboanga City is within the province of Zamboanga del Sur.
- Geographically Zamboanga City is at least 112 kilometers from the border of Zamboanga del Sur. Zamboanga City borders only the province of Zamboanga Sibugay and Zamboanga del Norte.
- Zamboanga City is in the Zamboanga peninsula but is not part of Zamboanga del Sur.
Many are crying for federalism they feel that this will be the only way that the Philippines will achieve more representation for the regions outside Metro Manila which has been dubbed as imperialistic. They argue that the federal form of government will efficiently cater to the needs of the country. The contention is that federalism will hasten economic development since the financial control is within each state with no significant limitation or restriction from the central government.
It is true that the current system of distribution of public funds is disproportional and biased towards the NCR (metro manila).
No need for Federalism in the Philippines
The people of the Philippines in the far flung barangays are crying for representation from the government of the Philippines. Specially from the legislative branch, both from congress and the senate, specially the senate.
The Philippines is already divided into 18 regions with cities, municipalities and provinces within each of the regions. Each region is already well represented by the house of representatives (congressmen). However, the senate does not represent the regions properly. Currently (2013-2016) the senate is only represented by 2 senators from the Visayas (one from Region 6 and another from region 7, and only two from Mindanao hailing from Region 10. The other 20 senators senators are from Luzon and 14 of them are from Metro Manila.
That is where the disparity is. The lack of representation of the far flung barangays.
The solution to the lack of Senatorial representation in each of the 18 Regions
Each region must have a minimum of one senator to represent in the legislative branch of the government.
Each senator will be elected from the region they represent. Senatorial election will no longer be a national election where the rich and popular from the NCR region (metro manila) will dominate the list of candidates. The senatorial election will be regional.
The only position that will be elected via national election will be the president of the Philippines. The rest will be by region (senators), by province (governors/congressmen), by municipalities/cities (mayors,councilors,congressmen).
The number of senatorial representation for each region will be determined by population, the minimum is one per region.
This method will guarantee the ARMM a senator to represent the Muslims in the senate, and every region a minimum of one senator to represent each Filipino citizen living in the far flung barangays of the Philippines.

Zamboanga.com was established in 1997 to expose Zamboanga City to the world. We did extensive studies about the history of the City of Zamboanga. We also started an online Chavacano Dictionary to propagate the official dialect of Zamboanga City.
In 2009 we decided to make the City of Zamboanga the portal to the Philippines via the internet so we coined the phrase "Zamboanga.com, the Portal to The Philippines". As of 2013 we have every Barangay in the Philippines linked to its Municipality and every municipality is linked to its Province and every province is linked to its Region. Nobody else in the world has this.
