The Seventeenth Congress of the Philippines (Filipino: Ikalabimpitong Kongreso ng Pilipinas) was the meeting of the national legislature of the Republic of the Philippines, composed of the Senate and House of Representatives. The convention of the 17th Congress was followed by the 2016 Senate election, which replaced half of the Senate membership, and the 2016 House of Representatives elections which elected the entire membership of the House of Representatives. The House of Representatives met in Batasang Pambansa Complex and the Senate met in the GSIS Building from July 25, 2016 to June 3, 2019, from the first to third year of the presidency of Rodrigo Duterte; this will be the end of tenure for senators elected in 2013. The 17th Congress was officially opened by President Duterte together with the joint session of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
