MANILA, Philippines -- Ten senatorial candidates have been endorsed by a youth partylist group, saying it believes that they will serve as the ?youth?s voice? in Congress.

Youth partylist group Kabataan (The Youth) has endorsed 10 senatorial candidates whom they believe will serve as the ?youth?s voice? in Congress.

Kabataan (The Youth) said it has chosen Genuine Opposition candidates Francis ?Chiz? Escudero, Aquilino ?Koko? Pimentel Jr., Sonia Roco, Dominique ?Nikki? Coseteng, Manuel ?Manny? Villar, and independent candidate Francis ?Kiko? Pangilinan for their accomplishments in youth and students' rights to education and employment.

Kabataan also endorsed TEAM Unity's Joker Arroyo and Ralph Recto and GO?s Alan Peter Cayetano whom they believed upheld human rights and fought against political repression.

It said that it was also supporting GO's Loren Legarda who had been vocal about the importance of youth representation in Congress.

Raymond Palatino, Kabataan national president and nominee, said that the party chose these candidates because they believed that they were the ?champions of and for the youth's cause.?

"On May 14, we encourage youth and students to vote for these candidates. Let us vote for principled leadership and meaningful change in government. Let the youth decide who among the senatorial candidates are worthy of serving the country," said Palatino in a statement.

Meanwhile, the partylist group also announced Friday that it would hold a Protest de Mayo at the Plaza Miranda in Manila where participants would be wearing ?gowns? highlighting issues on electoral fraud and violence.

The parade will commence in a nationally-coordinated noise barrage along Espaa later on Friday.

Kabataan also said that supporters would hold a camp-out vigil in front of Comelec on May 12 to ask for clean and honest elections.
