MANILA - A former lawmaker on Tuesday said President Rodrigo Duterte should use his strong political capital to prioritize an anti-political dynasty law.

Speaking to ANC, former Bayan Muna Representative Neri Colmenares said shifting to a federal form of government will not solve the real problem of the country, which is corruption.

"Even if you transform into a federal form of government, with the same system of abuse and corruption, parang nilipat mo lang ang abuse mula sa national papunta doon sa regional," he said.

"Ang dahilan ng kahirapan, di 'yung Constitution... E hindi naman nagkaroon ng tunay na agrarian reform. May contractualization kasi, may political dynasty," he noted.
