Cayetano: No good or bad dynasties; only good or bad politicians

/ 05:53 PM January 27, 2016

Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano is neither supporting nor opposing dynasties in the Philippine political landscape.

Cayetano, the son of former Sen. Rene Cayetano, has two siblings in politics, namely Sen. Pia Cayetano and Taguig City Rep. Lino Cayetano. His brother also served as councilor of Muntinlupa.

His wife, Lani Cayetano, is the incumbent mayor of Taguig.

“I respect those who are antidynasty but I don’t believe that’s the core issue,” Cayetano said over radio dzMM on Wednesday.

“Sa akin kasi, walang good or bad dynasty. It’s good or bad politicians,” he said.

But Cayetano, who is running for vice president, said he would not hinder efforts to push the passage of an antidynasty bill.

“Kung iyan ang gusto ng tao, hindi ko haharangin ‘yun,” he said. “I’m not prodynasty. You empower the people and let the people decide.”

Asked about the race for the mayoral post in Makati City, a known bulwark of the Binay family, Cayetano said he was hoping Acting Mayor Kid Peña of the administration would win in the upcoming elections. RC
