Is Senator Grace Poe changing her tune on political dynasties?
This was the question raised by Akbayan Youth following reports that the neophyte senator and the Villafuerte dynasty of Camarines Sur have forged an alliance.
“Just last Friday, Senator Poe expressed her opposition to the ‘perpetuation of political dynasties.’ But on Tuesday she was announcing a team up with one of the longest running political dynasties in the country. What gives?” Akbayan Youth Chairperson Rafaela David said.
“Did she change her mind in the three days between Friday and Tuesday? Or was her earlier stance on political dynasties pure posturing?” David added.
