Proyekto Pilipino ep. 63: Barangay Elections and Our Democracy

“If these political dynasties get more power and more money, our democracy will die.”

How does the barangay level of politics affect our people’s lives? How do we achieve real democracy with the help of our barangay elections? What makes a good barangay? These questions were asked and answered in this episode. We are given different perspectives on the realities we face regarding barangay politics.

In this episode, Fr. Tito Caluag, together with Atty. Christian Monsod, Leloy Claudio, and Manuel L. Quezon III discussed barangay elections and barangay politics: why this was postponed now only once but even a few times in the past; political dynasties in barangays and their influence in our democracy; and the importance of barangay leaders in shaping the everyday lives of their people.

Manuel L. Quezon III.
