President Aquino pushes for Anti-Dynasty Law
 

President Benigno S. Aquino III threw his support for the passage of the anti-political dynasty bill in his last State of the Nation Address (SONA), delivered at the Batasang Pambansa Complex on Monday.
 
President Aquino personally endorsed the bill before lawmakers, some of whom belong to political clans.
 
"Naaalala ko rin po: Kumontra akong pagkaitan ang isang tao ng karapatang tumakbo sa puwesto, dahil lang sa kanyang apelyido. Bakit nga naman tayo gagawa ng batas para pigilang maglingkod ang gustong maglingkod?" he said.
 
"Pero napag-isip din po ako: May mali rin sa pagbibigay ng pagkakataong habambuhay na magpakasasa sa kapangyarihan ang isang tiwaling pamilya o indibiduwal," he added.
 
The President said his fear of having a greedy leader is the very reason why he thumbed down the proposal to extend the term of Philippine presidents.
 
"Di tayo makakasiguro kung malinis ang intensyon sa mga susunod, o kung nanaisin lang nilang habambuhay na maghari-harian para sa sariling interes. Panahon na para ipasa ang isang Anti-Dynasty Law," he said.
 
The 1987 Constitution prohibits political dynasties but requires an enabling law to enforce it. No anti-dynasty law has ever been passed by Congress.
