He served as member for three (3) consecutive terms of the Philippine House of Representatives during the 11th, 12th and 13th congresses. 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. His advocacies and principled stand on several national issues together with his equally young colleagues did not go unnoticed, the media coined a name for their group and called them THE SPICE BOYS’.
