You can only vote for ONE (1) party list. Make it count.
Of the 123 official party lists on the voting sheet there were 24 disqualified parties that were reconsidered because of the adjustments in perimeters the Supreme Court made. This allows them to appeal to the Supreme Court, if and when they win. Because of these changes some unqualified party lists were left on the ballot sheet that we will be using on the May 13, 2013 elections.

As to why these party lists got disqualified, it could be for a number of reasons. Get creative. Maybe SMART, didn't surpass the 130 IQ mark and Bantay is actually a party of dogs. What? No one passed me the memo. You'd be surprised by how many party lists didn't qualify before the Supreme Court acted dainty and nice.
Party lists are made to represent a marginalized sector of our country. They have the same powers to that of a congressman.On the flip side.
I leave you with some party lists you wished were real and others, thankfully not.
