Bayan Muna congratulates the Kabataan Partylist for winning a seat in the House of Representatives, per SC GR No. 179271, promulgated April 21, 2009. Welcome to the Progressive Party-list Bloc! Mabuhay ang Kabataan Party-list! – KA SATUR OCAMPO (via text message)

The Supreme Court overturned the Panganiban formula as basis for allocation of seats for party-list groups, thus, consequently granting 32 more party-list representatives in Congress.

The SC justices were unanimous in their decision, raising the total number of party-list representatives from 22 to 54. The decision is immediately executory.

      I support mass electoral, working class parties. Is there a labor party in your country?

      yey! we can at least have the powers of congress to scrutinize and even halt tuition increases, though the youth can only achieve total victory by militantly struggling for our rights… kudos to kabataan partylist!
