    Phl president ready to sign Anti-Dynasty Bill into law

    PHILIPPINE President Benigno Aquino III on Friday said he is ready to sign into law the bill that seeks the abolition of political dynasties in the country.
    The President noted that the Anti-Dynasty Bill is already gaining traction in Congress, with House of Representatives Speaker Feliciano Belmonte speaking in favor of the initiative.
    He said he favors the abolition of political dynasties in the country as dynasties control the economic, political and even the judicial component of communities.
    Political dynasties also hamper the conduct of a fair and democratic election in a locality, he added.
    One of those who filed the Anti-Dynasty Bill was Congressman Edgar Erice of Caloocan, he said.
    The 1987 Constitution calls for an enabling law against political dynasties and the President has said he is ready to sign such bill into law when it reaches his desk.
