The Philippines' political scene will remain relatively stable in the forecast period. At the May 2013 mid-term elections the "Team PNoy" coalition of the president, Benigno Aquino, secured a majority in both houses of Congress, ensuring that he has the support to make good progress on his reform agenda.

Despite prompting large-scale public demonstrations in the capital, Manila, in October 2013, the ongoing "pork barrel" scandal is set to strengthen Mr Aquino's standing in Congress vis-à-vis legislators, following a Supreme Court ruling abolishing the Priority Development Assistance Fund. Congressmen must now lobby executive departments directly for approval of their pet projects before finalisation of the budget.

Rising electricity prices, continuing high levels of poverty and inadequate employment opportunities at home will also weigh on the political scene in 2014, but are unlikely to prove fatal to Mr Aquino's popularity.
