Religion in Philippines politics

Religion emerges as a key policy platform in the upcoming presidential polls.

    Religion has always played a powerful role in the Philippines, and is now emerging as a major issue with campaigning under way for forthcoming elections.

    Filipinos, who will head to the polls in May to elect a new president and legislature, will also consider other familiar election themes, including corruption and family interests.
