Online Petition

Please send the letter below to the COMMISSION ON ELECTIONS to demand for the disclosure of the party-list nominees. You may email it to ask.comelec.eid@gmail.com or send it through fax (02-5272770). Thank you very much.

Hon. Benjamin Abalos
Chairperson
Commission on Elections

Dear Chair Abalos:

This is to manifest our protest over the continuing refusal of the COMELEC to make public the list of all party-list nominees.

It is the constitutional right of all citizens to have access to information on matters of public concern. This is a right guaranteed under Section 7, Article 3 of the 1987 Constitution.

We call on the COMELEC to exercise their duty in ensuring a credible, honest and fair election. The non-disclosure policy prevents voters from scrutinizing which among the party-list groups are genuinely representing the interest of the marginalized and underrepresented. Hiding the list from the public is an insult to our capacity to understand the party-list system. It also compromises available mechanisms to question the accreditation of deceptive party-lists that are bastardizing a system that is supposed to provide space for the marginalized and under-represented.

Protect the integrity of the Party-list system. Bare the list of party-list nominees now!

    Isa akong manggagawa na narito sa Africa. Nakita ko dito ang kinahantungan ng mga tao rito bunga ng grabeng korapsiyon, digmaan at pananamantala. Dumating na sila sa punto na wala ng nasusunod na sistema, ang mga tao ay wala ng pakialam sa kanyang kapwa makuha lang and kanyang nais, ang mga taong bayan tanggap na lamang ang grabeng pagnanakaw sa pamahalaan, wala na silang paghahanda sa bukas, sa kahahantungan ng kanilang mga anak at bansa dahil ang iniisip nila ay kung paano mabubuhay sa araw na ito. Ayokong magyari ang ganito sa aking bayan ngunit sa nangyayari ngayon, nakikita kong dito tayo patungo kung hindi tayo magbabago. Ang eleksiyong ito ang maaaring panimula upang ibalik ang tamang moralidad, katapatan, pagiging makabayan at takot sa Diyos sa ating bansa at sa ating pamahalaan. Gawin natin ang tama upang ang eleksiyong ito ay maging malinis at tapat, hindi na para sa atin kundi para sa ating mga anak at sa mga susunod pang henerasyon. Iisa lamang ang Pilipinas, ang ating bayan.

    I appeal to those who people who loved the Philippines. Protect your votes. Never ever sell your votes. I believe that once we think 100 times we will be enlightened.

    I cast my votes to GO but i will not demand each everyone of you on my opinion and principles. I support Akbayan and other partylists who fought for out democracy!

    I-ladlad, eheste, ilantad nyo na Mr. Chairman. Makadagdag man lang sa kakaunting natitirang pagtitiwala sa Comelec at ng kabuuang institusyong pangpamahalaan. Salamat

    I have been blogging on BOGUS PARTY LIST since Akbayan bared the list of 11 questionable PL and had been following it up with the Bantay 7419 & Urban Poor list of 41.

    I just want to remind the COMELEC Chair and all the Commissioners that we are not morons!

  7. gloria e. ramos Says:

    i salute akbayan for creating this blog.

    We deserve an election body that protects the people’s votes, not a COMELEC that caters to somebody’s political survival.

  8. luisa villongco Says:

    the filipino masa deserves a voice, true representation. be transparent and do your duty as public servants for the people.

  9. Juana Says:

    Keep it up Akbayan. Buti na lang you created this blog. Nagngingitngit rin ako when I heard the news that COMELEC refuses to reveal the names. Insulto na naman sa pang-unawa ng mga Pinoy itong gingawa nila. I already sent my online petition.

    Let’s be vigilant. Let’s protect our votes mga kababayan!
