MANILA, Philippines — Over 90 party-list groups are appealing their denied registration with the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to join the 2022 polls.

Maristela Abenojar, president of both the Filipino Nurses United group and the Nurses United party-list, earlier said nurses should have a voice in Congress since over 10,000 of the 28,103 health workers who contracted COVID-19 belong to the profession. Groups from the business processing outsourcing (BPO) sector, educators as well as those advocating for the environment and against women and children violence are also among those with pending appeals.

Five groups, meanwhile, are still awaiting resolution on the petitions they filed to be registered with Comelec.
