Senate President Tito Sotto is telling old and new senators in the 18th Congress to be on their best behavior during committee hearings.

“Hindi naman maiiwasan na may nagagalit na senador kasi naman may mga resource person na kung ‘di man makulit or nagsisinungaling. Ang sabi ko sa kanil, kung ‘di naman malala ang sitwasyon, dapat nakaconcentrate kami sa in aid of legis. Paalala lang,” said Sotto in an interview with DWIZ radio.

“Mas senatorial yung kalmado ka, ilang beses ko nang nakita noong araw ‘yan. Si (Senator) Edja (Edgado J. Angara) ba nakita mo bang nagalit? Pero masakit ang sinasabi. Si Senator (Raul) Roco ganoon din,” he added.

Sotto said his goal was to avoid any criticisms against the body for shaming guests and grandstanding by making sure that all investigations would be aid of legislation.

“Nagpapaalala lang tayo para maiiwasan din ang mga namimintas sa Senado. Dapat pilitin natin ang mga hearings bukod sa in aid of legislation dapat may committee report. Minsan puro hearing lang, tapos may committee report pero di inaaprubahan sa plenary,” said Sotto
