Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, May 22) — Two party-list groups won three seats each at the House of Representatives after the 2019 midterm polls.

The Commission on Elections sitting as the National Board of Canvassers on Tuesday evening proclaimed that Anti-Crime and Terrorism Community Involvement and Support (ACT-CIS) and Bayan Muna as the top winners.

Among those that secured two seats are AKO BICOL, CIBAC, Ang Probinsyano, 1-PACMAN, Marino, and Probinsyano Ako.

Forty-three other party-lists had one seat each, including KABATAAN Party-list, Duterte Youth, TUCP, Magdalo, ACT-Teachers Partylist, and GABRIELA.

Seats in the House are distributed under the party-list law via proportional representation.

Based on the law, each group getting 2% of the total party-list votes will get a seat each – their No. 1 nominee will become representative.

After the first batch gets a seat each, what remains of the 61 seats will be distributed among those that got more than 2%. This will be raffled to nominees No. 2 and 3 of the party-list groups.
