List of Senate Presidents

The Senate was created on 1916 with the reformation of the Philippine Commission. The Senate and the House of Representatives formed the Philippine Legislature (PL). Representation was by district; Manuel Quezon was elected Senator from the now-defunct 5th Legislative District.

All Senators from 1945 onwards were elected at-large, with the whole Philippines as one constituency.
