MANILA, Philippines—Congress’ refusal to pass an anti-dynasty law could just be one more proof that, quoting Henry Kissinger, “power is an aphrodisiac,” says former Sen. Rene Saguisag.

No anti-dynasty bill ever reached the floor of either chamber of Congress for voting.

“Your search yielded no result,” went the reply on the House website when a search on the subject of political dynasties was made.

It might as well be the epitaph on the tomb of the anti-dynasty measure.

“Delicadeza,” Saguisag says, is the single most important ingredient lacking in the continuing process to stop political dynasties, “but it is long dead and gone.”
