Lacson Bill Seeks to Fulfill Constitution’s Provision vs Political Dynasties

After nearly 30 years, the Philippine Constitution’s provision prohibiting political dynasties may finally be fulfilled, with a bill filed by Sen. Panfilo M. Lacson.

Lacson said Senate Bill 49 seeks to implement the 1987 Constitution’s provision to give all Filipinos equal access to opportunities in public service by thwarting political dynasties.

“While the State recognizes the pernicious effects of political dynasties, there is still no enabling law to prohibit its existence in the political arena. Influential clans and families that are well-entrenched in the political arena have made positions in government their virtual playgrounds, resulting in the proliferation of small monarchies all over the country. This makes a mockery of what should otherwise be a level-playing field in politics and espouse political inequities,” he said.

Ping, Aarangkada vs Political Dynasty

Kumilos na si Senador Panfilo Lacson para pigilan ang pamamayagpag ng political dynasty o sabayang pagkakahalal sa mga magkakamag-anak sa iba’t ibang puwesto sa mga lugar na sakop ng mga ito.

Sa Senate Bill 49 na inihain ni Lacson, ipinaliwanag nito kung gaano kahalaga na matigilan na ang nabanggit na sistema na sa halos 30 taong nakalipas ay pinagpasasaan ng mga maiimpluwensiyang magkakamag-anak sa isang lugar.

Dito sa Pilipinas, karaniwan na lamang na kapag ang isang politiko ay nahalalal sa mataas na posisyon sa lugar na nasasakupan nito, may mga miyembro ng pamilya o kalapit na kaanak na nananalo din sa mas mababang puwesto.
