Arnulfo P. Fuentabella (born October 29, 1945) was the Speaker of the Philippine House of Representatives from 2000 to 2001. He is now a representative of Camarines Sur.

Speakership[edit]

After then Speaker Manny Villar passed the President Joseph Estrada's Articles of Impeachment to the Senate, Fuentebella was elected Speaker after Estrada's allies in the House of Representatives motioned to make all positions in the House vacant; Fuentebella won the nomination.

On January 20, 2001, during the EDSA Revolution of 2001, Estrada left the Malacañan Palace and Vice President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo was sworn to the presidency at the EDSA Shrine by Chief Justice Hilario Davide. Accompanying Davide were the chairs of the two houses of Congress, Aquilino Pimentel and Fuentebella. Four days later, on January 24, the Arroyo allies mustered enough votes to unseat Fuentebella, replacing him with Quezon City representative Feliciano Belmonte.

Post-speakership[edit]

On the 14th Congress, Fuentebella was elected Deputy Speaker for Luzon.
