CBCP to voters: Shun political dynasties, ‘inexperienced’ bets

June 10, 2015, 12:18 p.m. - LESS than a year before the 2016 national elections, the head of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of the Philippines (CBCP) warned voters against “spin doctors,” political dynasties, and “inexperienced” candidates.

CBCP President and Lingayen-Dagupan Archbishop Socrates Villegas reminded voters that the right to suffrage was not merely a political right, but a moral obligation. He urged them to vote for the “right reasons.”
