MANILA, Philippines – After a series of reforms, a last-minute Supreme Court decision, and a marathon re-assessment by the poll body, there are a few things that are finally clear about the party list:
- As intended by the Constitution and the party-list law, it is not exclusive to the marginalized sectors.
- There are 111 groups that are qualified to vie for seats.
How do you know what group seeks to represent your sector or advocacy or region? Or, is there is any organization that seeks to represent you at all?
Rappler drew up this list to help voters find the group that fits them. We have categorized the 111 accredited organizations according to the advocacy and the sectors they registered to represent.
See the full list below. It is sorted by sector/advocacy, then by the acronym of the groups. Names in bold are the groups seeking re-election:

Forty-one party-list groups are running for re-election. Eight are in the SMEs and consumers sector, the most re-electionist groups in any category.
Recap of the 2013 party list
A total of 289 groups submitted their manifestations of intent to participate in the 2013 party list. On Dec 26, 2012, Comelec trimmed down the roster to 84, in an unprecedented purge.
Fifty-two disqualified groups – including 2010 topnotchers Ako Bicol, 1-CARE, and Senior Citizens – obtained status quo ante orders (SQAOs) from the Supreme Court, allowing them to remain on the ballot.
During the Comelec raffle on Jan 4, 2013, to determine the order of appearance of party lists on the ballot, the poll body inadvertedly included 13 new groups which obtained SQAOs but failed to secure mandatory injunctions from the SC. Comelec retained the raffle results, while leaving blank on the ballot the spaces meant for the 13.
On April 5, 2013, the Supreme Court introduced 6 parameters to determine qualified party-list groups. The High Court then remanded to Comelec the petitions of the disqualified party-list groups.
On Monday, May 6, Comelec reinstated 24 groups and cancelled the accreditation of 11 others. It disallowed one organization from joining the elections.
The remaining three party-list groups – 1-Utak, Pacyaw, and Pasang Masda – were allowed to join the polls in a rehearing of their accreditation on Thursday, May 9.
The final number of accredited party lists on the ballot stands at 111. – Rappler.com
(Editor’s note: We earlier reported that there are 112 accredited party-list groups. The party list SMART was included in the list above, but it was among those disqualified by Comelec on May 6. We regret the error. – Ed.)
