MANILA – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Wednesday (May 22) proclaimed the winning 51 partylist groups in the May 13 midterm national and local elections.
The 51 partylist groups are entitled to 61 seats available in the House of Representatives and will serve a three-year term beginning at noon of June 30, 2019.
The groups that have received three seats each are ACT-CIS and Bayan Muna.

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
