If we still remember it, political dynasty after the 1972 Martial Law started at the time of the late President Corazon C. Aquino when the new Constitution was framed and ratified and a new local government code was in adopted.
Among the principal authors of these changes was then local government secretary or minister Aquilino Pimentel Jr., father of Senator Koko Pimentel, and now one of those committee members appointed by President Duterte to draft a constitution of the President’s proposed federalism.
From then on, political dynasty has began to build and now here we are ruled by families in our respective localities. How it came so rapidly and whatever reasons there are, political clans controlled the development of our areas with the power and money aimed for the public welfare but they consider their own at their disposal.
Sad to say, indeed, political clans ruling us have not helped alleviate the conditions of the Filipino people in any aspect of their way of life — political, economic, cultural etc. — because the problem is rooted in the very system that Filipino lives are subjected to follow as citizens of this country.
There is an urgent need, therefore, to change this system. Federalism so far is seen by keen observers as the best solution for our woes. But if this could not happen, then what about revolutionary government can be another alternative. – RSP
