I. Mandate, Vision, Mission and List of Officials
Section 17, Article VI of the 1987 Philippine Constitution which provides:
The Senate and the House of Representatives shall each have an Electoral Tribunal, which shall be the SOLE JUDGE of all contests relating to the ELECTION, RETURNS, and QUALIFICATIONS of their respective Members. Each Electoral Tribunal shall be composed of nine Members, three of whom shall be Justices of the Supreme Court to be designated by the Chief Justice, and the remaining six shall be Members of the Senate or the House of Representatives, as the case may be, who shall be chosen on the basis of proportional representation from the political parties and the parties or organizations registered under the party-list system represented therein. The senior Justice in the Electoral Tribunal shall be its Chairman.
That we be true SENTINELS of the SANCTITY of SUFFRAGE, as we read and understand the real message of the voters, apply the correct appreciation of the law and evidence, discover wicked schemes to silence or falsify the voice of the people and act with efficiency without sacrificing the uncompromising criterion of JUSTICE.
A TRIBUNAL that adheres to the principles of JUSTICE, INTEGRITY and FAIRNESS in the proclamation of the will of the electorate as to who are fit to serve as Members of the House of Representatives as mandated by the Constitution.
