MANILA, Philippines – A total of 144 party list groups have been accredited by the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to join the national elections in May, the poll body announced on Friday.

A total of 306 party list groups applied for accreditation from November 20 to December 1 last year.

“We have accredited a total of 144 party lists out of 306 that filed manifestations to participate in the party list system of representation in the May elections. Of the total, one is included the gay party list Ang Ladlad as per the Supreme Court ruling that ordered Comelec to include it in the ballot with pre-printed names of candidates pending the result of its petition,” said Comelec commissioner Gregorio Larrazabal.

Among the approved party lists were gay group Ang Ladlad, educators’ group Act Teachers, Alyansa ng Media at Showbiz (Alliance of Mediamen and Showbiz Professionals), Cocofed, Kabataan, Akap Bata, Kaakbay, Pwersa ng Bayaning Atleta of Manny Pacquiao and Unimad.

The Comelec requires the registered party list groups to submit a list of nominees to the poll body and publish the names in all campaign materials.

The five nominees should be submitted to the Comelec legal department not later than March 26.
