A total of 134 party-lists vied for seats at the lower house in the May midterm polls.

Among those groups that failed to win seats in the lower chamber were Akbayan and Anakpawis despite support from their grassroots organizations.

A group that is able to get at least 2% of the total number of votes cast in the party-list race are entitled to at least one seat. These groups can still secure up to two more seats based on a second round formula.

Those who fail to reach the 2% threshold may still get a seat since the law provides that 20% of the members of the House of Representatives should come from party-list groups.
