The HRET, on the other hand, is an electoral tribunal that decides election protests in the House of Representatives of the Philippines. It consists of six representatives and three justices of the Supreme Court (SC) of the Philippines, who are designated by the Chief Justice.

Before this, the House leadership rescinded its prior designation of Robes as chairperson of the House Committee on People’s Participation.
