Presidential sister Kris Aquino-Yap wastes no time to broker power

Remember the names of these senators:

- Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada
- Manuel "Lito" Lapid
- Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.

These are senators who have so far been reported to have taken up what is reported by the Manila Bulletin as offers of "perks" from Kris Aquino-Yap in exchange for support for Senator Francis "Kiko" Pangilinan's bid for President of the Senate...
The celebrity actress is said to have firmed up the commitment of three senators – Senate President Pro Tempore Jinggoy Ejercito Estrada, Senators Manuel "Lito" Lapid, and Ramon "Bong" Revilla Jr.

According to the source, Kris promised Lapid and Revilla that their committee chairmanships will be retained under Pangilinan's watch.

Lapid is currently handling the Committee on Sports, Games, and Amusement, while Revilla is chairman of the Committees on Public Services and Public Works.

Aquino reportedly promised Estrada that he will remain Senate President Pro Tempore under a Pangilinan-led Senate.

The source also confirmed that Aquino's sister is also calling up Senate Majority Leader Juan Miguel Zubiri to solicit support.

Kiko Pangilinan is the husband of Kris's colleague in showbiz Sharon Cuneta. According to the report, Kris Aquino-Yap has so far not responded to text queries on the matter.
