The Minority leader of the Senate of the Philippines (also called as the Senate Minority Floor Leader) is the leader elected by the minority party of the Senate of the Philippines that serves as their official leader in the body.

He also manages the business of the minority part in the Senate. He is expected to be alert and vigilant in defense of the minority’s rights. It is his function and duty to criticize constructively the policies and programs of the majority, and to this end employ parliamentary tactics and give close attention to all proposed legislation.

The current Minority Floor Leader of the Senate is Vicente Sotto III, replacing Juan Ponce Enrile, who was arrested due to Pork barrel scam. Sotto previously served in the post on the 12th Congress.
