Benigno Aquino, who was elected president in 2010, faces impeachment charges over a budgetary programme that has been deemed unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. The move to impeach him is unlikely to succeed, as his "Team PNoy" coalition secured a majority in both houses of Congress at the mid-term elections in May 2013. The Economist Intelligence Unit therefore expects him to complete his term and to stand down as planned in 2016.

Nonetheless, the court ruling still represents a heavy political blow against the president, and could weaken his ability to push through reforms to boost good governance and economic growth. Although no allegations have been made that Mr Aquino or other top officials used the programme to line their pockets, there is growing concern over the president's wide powers to realign and move funds around, which may prompt reforms to economic governance.

Ongoing high levels of poverty and inadequate employment opportunities at home will weigh on the political scene in 2014-15. The lack of a comprehensive rehabilitation plan several months after Typhoon Haiyan hit the country raises questions about the lasting damage of the disaster.
