Trillanes: Despite low attendance, I’m most productive senator

Senator Antonio Trillanes IV said Wednesday he is doing his job even if he is not present at the session hall

At a press conference, Trillanes claimed that he is one of the most productive senator in terms of bills filed and sponsored.
“Ang hindi narereport is number one ako bilang most productive senator dito sa Congress na ito. So, ‘di ba yun ang mas importante kaysa naka-attend ka nga diyan, araw-araw kang uma-attend pero wala ka namang ginagawa,”  he told reporters when asked on the matter.
“I’m the most productive in terms of the numbers of bills filed. I’m in the top five at least sa pinakamaraming sponsored na bills. So, ginagawa ko ‘yung trabaho ko,” he added. 
He was on official mission 23 times, of which 20 were out of the country and the others local. He also has four absences.
Those who registered perfect attendance were Senate President Vicente Sotto III, Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri, former Senate President Aquilino Pimentel III, and Senator Panfilo Lacson.
Trillanes said on the days he is not at the session hall, he is on official mission and still doing his duty as a senator.
“Meron akong official business when I was out so covered ‘yan by a travel authority. So technically, that is not counted as an absence. But, at the end of the day ginagawa ko yung trabaho ko,” he said.
“Given the opportunity na imbestigahan ‘yung mga kalabisan nitong administrasyon na ito, ginagawa ko. Sa ganitong klaseng administrasyon na baluktot, ‘yun ang importanteng trabaho ng Senado [ma] apparently hindi na namin ginagawa,” Trillanes added.
