Former senatorial aspirant Rodante Marcoleta is returning at the House of Representatives  as one of SAGIP party-list’s representatives. 

The announcement came after weeks of speculation that he might be appointed to a Cabinet position under the incoming Marcos administration.

Marcoleta posted in his social media page that he and incoming Congresswoman Caroline Tanchay took their oath as SAGIP’s new representatives before Supreme Court Associate Justice Jose Midas P. Marquez.

President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. earlier mentioned that Marcoleta is being considered to be his Energy secretary.

Marcoleta ran for a Senate chair during the 2022 elections under the PDP-Laban and UniTeam, but he withdrew in April because of “poor showing” in pre-election surveys.
