Melo has deferred the proclamation of 11 party-list groups which have pending disqualification cases filed against them or their nominees.

Following are those facing petitions for cancellation of registration:

* Ako Bicol Political Party (Ako Bicol)
* Buhay Hayaan Yumabong Party-list (Buhay)
* 1st Consumers Alliance for Rural Energy (1-CARE)
* Citizens' Battle Against Corruption (CIBAC)
* LPG Marketers Association, Inc. (LPGMA)
* Ang Asosasyon Sang Manguguma Nga Bisaya-Ow Mangunguma, Inc. (MBIS-OWA)
* Association of Philippine Electric Cooperatives (APEC)
* Alliance for Nationalism and Democracy (ANAD)


Those facing petitions for disqualification of party-list nominee:

* 1-UTAK
* Advocacy for Teacher Empowerment Through Action Cooperation and Harmony Towards Educational Reforms (A Teacher)
* Butil Farmer Party (BUTIL)



The proclamation was based on 121 certificates of canvass or 29,441,706 votes.

The Party-list System Act (Republic Act 7941) says that those who received at least two percent of the total votes cast for the party-list system shall be entitled to one congressional seat each while those who received more than two percent of the votes shall be entitled to additional seats in proportion to their total number of votes.

However, each party-list organization shall not be awarded more than three seats in Congress.

The Comelec has yet to receive all the votes cast for the party-list system, specifically from areas where failure of elections took place.

Included in these areas are seven municipalities of Lanao del Sur, two municipalities of Basilan, and one municipality of Sarangani — where special polls have been scheduled on June 3.

The 1987 Philippine Constitution provides that 20 percent of the seats in Congress or 57 seats be allotted for the sectoral representatives.

Melo admitted, however, that there are many things that must be "revisited" about the party-list system.

He said he hopes the new party-list representatives will tackle these during their term. - RJAB Jr., GMANews.TV
