Akbayan Partylist demands the Commission on Elections (Comelec) to immediately take action on the disenfranchised votes in the 2019 election and disqualify vote-buying partylists.
We condemn the vote-buying of some partylist groups in some regions and reports of disenfranchisement of Akbayan votes in several precincts. Several members raised the alarm on votes for Akbayan partylist that were not registered on the final tally.
Akbayan will manifest to the Comelec and demand for the following:
Investigation and disqualification of partylists who have reportedly practiced vote-buying in some precincts.
Investigation of disenfranchised Akbayan votes in reported areas.
Akbayan Senator Risa Hontiveros will call for an investigation on the data blackout from the transparency servers and other issues that undermine the elections.
Akbayan is fortunate to represent ordinary Filipino families the longest in congress, having served for 21 years straight.
