2010 Elections

List of Party-Lists in 2010 Elections

Party-list congressmen in the House of Representatives are voted at-large during elections. These representatives are meant to represent and author laws that concern their marginalized sector in Congress.

However, voters would vote for one party-list only. Moreover, the voters would vote for the party-list group itself, not for its representative(s). With that said, each party-list is tasked by COMELEC to submit a list of at least five nominees 45 days before the elections (this year, it’s March 26).

This year, however, after some party-lists included famous and controversial names in its list of nominees, the COMELEC ruled and emphasized in Resolution No. 8807 that a qualified nominee for a party-list is

5. A bona fide member of the party-list or organization which he seeks to represent for at least ninety (90) days preceding election day;
(omission mine)
7. One who belongs to the marginalized and underrepresented sector/s, the sectoral party, organization, political party or coalition he seeks to represent;
– Section 6, Numbers 5 and 7, COMELEC Resolution No. 8807

In addition, the COMELEC said that the nominee should also have a proven track record in their advocacy.

History of Party-Lists

After the implementation of a multi-party system of politics in the country, party-lists emerged and sought to be properly represented and to actively participate in legislation especially concerning their sectors.

From 1987 to 1998, party-list representatives were appointed by the President. Then in 1998, it was decreed that party-lists should be voted by the populace.

From 1998 to 2007, party-lists groups obtaining at least 2% of the total votes in an election wins a seat in Congress. Every 2% thereafter would garner them another seat.

In 2009, the Supreme Court ruled unconstitutional this formula, as written in RA 7941, also known as the Party-List System Act. Consequently, the SC formulated a new system of distributing party-list seats in Congress:

  • 20% of all seats in the Lower House is allocated to sectoral representatives (meaning, the # of party-list Congressmen is not equal to 20% of the total # of district representatives); we let S be this total number
  • The party-lists that garnered at least 2% of the total # of votes are guaranteed one seat. We’ll call this the first round.
  • If the total number of party-list representatives after the first round (we let T be this number) does not reach the allocated number of seats for sectoral representatives (S), a formula based on the % of votes garnered would determine which winning party-lists would get more seats. This process would repeat until T equals S.
