According to Bayan Muna, it vows to keep and advance its position as a leading partylist group and secure three seats in the 2022 elections for the upcoming 19th congress “despite the attacks, vilification campaign and the challenges posed by the pandemic.”

The group’s first nominee is former Bayan Muna party-list Representative Teodoro Casiño, who was the former president of the College Editors Guild of the Philippines, and is the current  spokesperson of the Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (BAYAN), as well as its former secretary general.
