That is if they have been granted new registration or accreditation.

“The 24 partylists delisted under Resolution 10273 dated March 19 cannot run in the 2019 elections. But they can run in 2022, if they have been granted new registration/accreditation,” Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon said in her Twitter account @commrguanzon.

But, she said, Comelec Resolution 10273 also provides that any “partylist groups, organizations, and coalitions adversely affected by our Resolution may file a reconsideration with the clerk of the Commission 10 days from notice hereof.”

Earlier, the poll body ordered the delisting of 24 partylist organizations for failing to participate in the last two poll exercises; failure to obtain at least 2 percent of the votes cast for the partylist system and failure to obtain a seat in the second round of seat allocation for the partylist system in the last two preceding polls.

Those delisted for failing to participate in the last two poll exercises are: ARCAPP; BIDA; CHINOY; SABOD and WPI.

The partylist groups ordered delisted for failing to get at least 2 percent of the votes cast for the partylist elections and failure to obtain a seat in the second round of seat allocation for the party list system in the last two preceding elections are the following: SANLAKAS; ABANTE RETIREES; 1-ABILIDAD; PISTON; ALE; ANG PROLIFE; ATING GURO; UMALAB KA; AMA; AMOR SEAMAN; 1-AALALAY; MTM PHILS; ANG KASANGGA; AGHAM; MIGRANTE; AWAT MINDANAO and 1-PABAHAY.

COCOFED, on the other hand, has been delisted due to its failure to obtain a seat in the second round of seat allocation for the partylist system in the 2010 and 2013 elections as well as its failure to participate in the 2016 polls.

Based on the PartyList System Act, the Comelec may cancel a partylist organization’s registration if it fails to participate in the last two preceding elections or fails to obtain at least 2 percent of the votes cast under the partylist system in the two preceding elections.
