Philippine Mid-terms - Keeping It In The Family
Dr.Aries Arugay, Professor of Political Science, University of Philippines-Diliman
A key battle in the Philippines mid-terms will be for the 12 Senate seats up for grabs, which, if captured by President Rodrigo Duterte's allies, would mean a Duterte-aligned supermajority in both Houses of Parliament. For more insight into the elections, we speak to Dr. Aries Arugay, Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Philippines-Diliman, about possible outcomes, what policies Duterte may push through if he wins Senate control, and the other members of the Duterte family stepping up to the political plate.
