MANILA, Philippines - Bayan Muna Rep. Teddy Casiño on Tuesday said a bill against political dynasties has undergone a second hearing at the House committee level but has not moved forward.

Casiño said that while it is the duty of Congress to issue a law against political dynasties, the measure is not gaining support because of political dynasties inside the House of Representatives and Senate.

"This is the type of bill that no one really objects to but doesn't progress either and we all know why," he said.
