144 party-list groups get Comelec nod

Even if this is not yet final, since the Supreme Court will still have to decide, seeing Ang Ladlad in that list already makes us happy -- and gay. Expect Ang Ladlad to win three seats and win by a landslide over its rivals.

MANILA, Philippines – The Commission on Elections (Comelec) today gave the green light to 144 party-list groups to participate in the May 2010 elections.

In issuing Resolution No. 8744, the Comelec en banc allowed 144 out of more that 300 party-list groups that filed their manifestations of intent to participate in the coming polls.

Gay group Ang Ladlad was among those given the go signal to run in the polls.

The poll body previously allotted 200 party-list organizations but since the approved list was lower than expected, the length of the ballot to be used in the elections may be altered.

Meanwhile, Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said that although disqualified party-list groups could still file motions for consideration before the Supreme Court, the poll body would no longer change the ballot once it is printed.

"We believe that we already have the final list of candidates. We have already done our part, and we would not sacrifice the conduct of orderly elections just for one or two groups who did not do theirs. Remember, the right to be elected is not an absolute right," he said.

Jimenez also expressed confidence that the Supreme Court will take into account the Comelec’s schedule before it makes decisions in connection with the coming polls.
