MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) accredited on Tuesday six more partylist groups for the elections in May, bringing the total of competing sectors to 150, a spokesman for the poll body said.

These are the Alliance for Rural and Agrarian Reconstruction (Araro); Alyansa ng Lumad Mindanao Inc (Alumad); LPG Marketers Association (LPGMA); Alyansa ng OFW Party; National Coalition on Indigenous People’s Action (ANG NCIP); and Bagong Koalisyon ng Nagkakaisang Samahan ng Sektor ng Transportasyon (Bangon Transport), said James Jimenez, adding that the groups represented indigenous peoples, transport and agriculture.

Under Resolution 8745, the six partylist groups, together with 144 others announced last week would be printed on the special paper ballots to be used in the automated polls, said Jimenez.

For the 2007 polls, the Comelec accredited 90 partylist groups.
