As member of the Philippine congress, he was elected as chairman of several committees’, such as committee on economic affairs, committee on accounts and committee on dangerous drugs. He was one of the young elected representatives of the 11th congress who played a crucial role in the ESTRADA impeachment for alleged corruption and violation of the constitution.
