The Philippine presidential and vice presidential election has been a controversial issue for the longest time and the upcoming 2016 election is no different. There are several candidates coming from dynastic families whom aspire to follow the footsteps of their relatives.
Political dynasties have long been present in democratic countries and it raises several issues. This study will focus on answering the three (3) legal issues regarding political dynasty, which are the grave abuse of discretion on the part of the Congress, the right to equal access to opportunities for public office and the sufficiency of senate and house bills proposed.
There are still no clear definition of what political dynasty is, so this study will provide a definition accompanied by explanations.
