‘It’s now time to pass the Anti-Dynasty Law’ -- PNoy

QUEZON CITY, July 28 -- President Benigno Aquino III called for the passage of the Anti-Dynasty Law during his sixth and last State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Monday. “Di tayo nakakasiguro kung malinis ang intensyon ng susunod, o kung nanaisin lang nilang habambuhay na maghari-harian para sa sariling interes. Panahon na para ipasa ang isang Anti-Dynasty Law,” Aquino said, speaking before members of the 16th Congress.
