The Commission on Elections (Comelec) proclaimed 55 winning party-list groups, whose representatives will occupy 62 seats in the House of Representatives, at rites at the Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) on Thursday, May 26.
Two winning partly list groups, Abang Lingkod and P3PWD, are represented by Negrenses.
The victory of Abang Lingkod means Rep. Stephen Paduano of Negros Occidental will serve another term in Congress.
Paduano and his wife, Ma. Lalaine Lam Paduano, joined the proclamation rites at the PICC.
Former Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon who campaigned for the P3PWD said its president is Grace Santibañez Yaneza who is from Bacolod City.*
