Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 25) — The Commission on Elections (Comelec) has named the 55 winning party-list groups in this year’s elections, which will be officially proclaimed on Thursday.
The poll body released the complete list of party-list groups to be proclaimed as winners, with ACT-CIS leading the roll.
All winning party-lists are entitled to at least one seat in the 19th Congress.
The groups Kabataan and Gabriela, which are both facing petitions to cancel their registrations from National Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (NTF-ELCAC), will be proclaimed.
Meanwhile, United Senior Citizens, which placed 37th in last week’s canvass report, is not on the list. Senior Citizens PL has filed for the group’s disqualification.
The proclamation ceremony will be held on Thursday, 4:00 p.m, at the PICC Forum 2 Tent, according to Comelec.
