After the proclamation, 2nd-placer Gabriela made a manifestation before the NBOC that 20% of the total seats in the House would be equivalent to 59.5 or 60 seats, and not 59 as earlier promulgated by the Comelec in a resolution.
Given the additional seat available, Gabriela said the computation for vote percentages should merit the organization 3 seats instead of just 2.
The women's group was advised to file a formal manifestation with the Comelec.
Commissioner Christian Lim also said the Comelec en banc will take up next week the party-list organizations' motions to change their lists of nominees, before the poll body can issue certifications of proclamation to the propert representatives.
The party list is a system meant to better represent marginalized sectors, as well as groups without "well-defined constituencies," in the House of Representatives.
The Constitution allots to the party list 20% of seats in the House of Representatives.
A total of 115 party-list groups joined the 2016 elections. These organizations vied for 59 seats allocated for the party list. – Rappler.com
