Abstract: This thesis explains why the Philippine Congress, despite the 1987 Constitutionb s mandate to enact it, passed the Overseas Absentee Voting (OAV) law in 2003, not earlier. I argue that the existing literature, which views Philippine politics as being dominated by competing patrons or the political elite, plays down the role of civil society actors and therefore provides only a partial explanation of the OAV issue.
