Voter’s Pledge to Abide by the Constitutional Provision on Political Dynasty

I ______________________________, do solemnly swear and pledge and commit to vote only Congressional and Senatorial candidates who will commit with a personal pledge and guarantee that, if elected, they will pass a long overdue enabling law on Political Dynasty, as stated in Article II, Section 26 of the Constitution below: “The state shall guarantee equal access to public service and prohibit political dynasty as may be defined by law.” I further swear that my vote will only be to any candidate regardless of their political party affiliation or as an independent as long as they pledge in writing that the enabling law they will legislate, support, and vote defines clearly and precisely what and who belongs to a political dynasty leaving no room for vague interpretation and loopholes. Said law gives the Commission on Election the power to approve or disapprove the Certificate of Candidacy of the political clan based on a clearly defined enabling law to ensure an easy to understand enforceable Implementing Rules & Regulations (IRR) that even a Barangay Tanod can easily enforce. As minimum criteria, Political Dynasty is to be defined as the concentration, consolidation or perpetuation of public office and political power by persons related to one another. Any spouse (wife/husband/common law wife) or relatives within the second civil degree (minimum to 4th degree) of consanguinity or affinity are prohibited from running simultaneously for elective office within the same city or province of the incumbent elective official. A stiff penalty for violation with heavy fines and losing of the right to vote and/or lifetime ban on elective and appointive position in public office for repeat offenders shall be imposed. Furthermore I pledge to encourage at least three (3) registered voters to sign and commit the same pledge to vote only candidates who pledge in writing, to pass or support enabling laws against political dynasty. ______________________________ Signature ______________________________ Print Name _________________________ Date
