Formatted Abstract/Summary
This chapter examines the nature and dynamics of political legitimacy in the Philippines since the democratic order was restored 25 years ago. The chapter argues that the democratic system in the country— though still largely unconsolidated and suffering from deficits in performance legitimacy— remains stable because Filipinos in general are principled believers in democracy and do not favor authoritarian alternatives. Even so, the legitimacy of the Philippine state will continue to be challenged by armed rebellions and poverty, both of which have persisted under the restored democratic order.
