Jose de Venecia, Jr., the five-time Speaker of the House of Representatives of the Philippines, has been for years a trail-blazer for the Filipino people, Asia, and the world. In a political arena often plagued by uncertainty, intrigue, corruption, and poverty, he has fought relentlessly to cast off the Philippines' unflattering moniker as the "sick man of Asia" and has sought to bring political, economic, and cultural influence to the dynamic, hard-working people of his homeland.
Despite all these advancements, Jose de Venecia is still not immune to the turbulence of Philippine politics. In February 2008, he was ousted from the Speakership after refusing to ignore his conscience and opposed with his son, Joey III, a scandal-wracked government deal involving some very prominent members of the Philippine government. Through it all, however, de Venecia has continued to serve the people of his great country. De Venecia continues the fight to improve the lives of his fellow countrymen.
