Political analyst Richard Heydarian can’t help but be horrified by the politikos who will make up the Senate in the 18th Congress.

In a tweet posted Tuesday (March 12), Heydarian appeared to hope for divine intervention.

“The likely composition of the next Senate just gives me shivers… may Heavens help this country that never loses the opportunity to elect a kakistocracy…,” he said.

Merriam-Webster’s online dictionary defines “kakistocracy” as the “government by the worst people.”

Results of pre-election surveys conducted since the start of 2019 consistently show the senatorial race being dominated by candidates endorsed by the administration-backed political party Hugpong ng Pagbabago.

Only two politikos from the opposition, Senator Bam Aquino and former senator Mar Roxas, appear to have a statistical chance of winning so far.
