Isabela 1st District Representative Tonypet Albano said banning political dynasties limits the public’s right to choose their leaders.
The Isabela politiko made the remark during the hearing of the House committee on constitutional amendments last January 28.
He belongs to the Albano dynasty which includes the province’s governor, his older brother Rodito Albano.
Fromer LPGMA Representative Rodito Albano Jr passed away in November 2019.
“The strengthening of political reforms and educating people is more important than limiting the democratic right of a person to run and be voted upon, whether he is a spouse, a son, a brother, or a sister,” Albano said.
