Comelec: 39 party list groups to be delisted
MANILA, Philippines — Thirty-nine party list groups will no longer be eligible to participate in the May 9, 2022, elections for either not getting enough votes or not participating at all in the last two elections.
“We are notifying the following party list organizations that their respective registrations are being considered for removal or cancellation by the Commission,” the Commission on Elections (Comelec) said in a notice last week.
Thirty of the 39 party list groups failed to get at least 2 percent of the votes cast in the last two party list elections and therefore failed to obtain a seat in the House of Representatives.
These are Alay Buhay, Ating Koop, AVE, Abakada, Banat, Abamin, Append, Ang Nars, Tao Muna, Ako An Bisaya, Anupa, Consla, ASEAN6, Amepa OFW, FICTAP, Global, KMM, Metro, PM, Samako, Sinag, Ito Ang Tama, Tinderong Pinoy, TRICAP, UNIDO, ALL-FISH, Awake, Kamais, PBB and 1-Ahapo.
Nine party list groups will have their registration canceled for failing to participate in the last two elections.
These are Ading, 1-AAMOVER, Ang Pamilya, AG, Alagad, ANAD, Kakusa, Kalikasan and 1-Aani.
The Comelec has fixed the deadline for the filing of petitions for registration and manifestation of intent to participate for party list groups on March 31.
The same deadline applies to existing party list groups to file their manifestation of intent to participate. INQ
