More than a hundred party-list groups were assigned a number which would determine the order of their listing on the official ballots for the 2022 elections.
Their placement on the ballots of 166 party-list groups was a result of the electronic raffle conducted by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Tuesday, December 14.
Party-list groups Kamalayan, KM Ngayon Na, PSIS, Agap, and Kabayan secured the first five slots on the ballot.
Groups 1-Pacman, ABB-NFCPI, An Waray, AP Party-List, Akap Pinoy, and Buhay, meanwhile, received the last six slots.
Meanwhile, seven rejected party-list groups which secured a temporary restraining order (TRO) from the Supreme Court after the raffle was conducted were also included on the Comelec’s final listing of party-list groups published on December 29.
- Alliance for Resilience, Sustainability and Empowerment (Arise)
- Igorot Warriors
- Ang Tinig ng Seniors
- Lingkud Bayanihan Party (LBP)
- Ipeaceepanaw (Mindanao Indigenous Peoples Conference for Peace and Development)
- Uma Ilonggo
The full list can be seen below:
The Comelec first raffled off party list slots for the 2013 elections so that party-list groups with names that started with “1” or “A” wouldn’t automatically appear on top of the list.
Unlike in past election years, representatives of party-list groups qualified to join the 2022 polls were allowed to witness the raffle only virtually in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. – Rappler.com
