The Party-list system is any system of proportional representation in which voters choose among parties rather than among candidates. The objective of this system is to help create a healthy democracy, providing a citizens’ voice in Congress and in local government by providing the “marginalized sector and underrepresented” sectors to have seats in Congress.

However, in the May 2010 automated election, the party-list system became a target for controversies when COMELEC leniently approved almost every party-list organizations which filed for candidacy even without any clear representation of a marginal or underrepresented sector. Teddy Casino of Akbayan promised that amending the rules on party-list system will be one their group’s priority legislation. Amen to this.
