For a partylist group to win a seat in Congress, it should have secured at least two percent of the total votes. If a partylist group gets votes exceeding two percent, it shall be entitled to seats, the number of which is proportionate to the number of votes the partylist bet received.

A winning partylist group shall have, however, a maximum of three seats in Congress. A total of 134 party-list groups participated in the last mid-term polls. GAD/Expat Media
