“Accusation is a cheapshot aimed at gathering media mileage at our expense”

     The Babae para sa Kaunlaran or BABAE KA condemns in the strongest possible words the unfounded accusation of Akbayan that the former is an “administration front”. This is nothing but a cheap shot aimed at gathering media mileage at our expense and that of other legitimate party-list organizations.

     BABAE KA is not a government-controlled party-list organization. BABAE KA is a legitimate organization existing since 2005 and registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) before being accredited by the Commission on Elections (Comelec). It submitted all the requirements and went through the legal process. It has organizational presence in majority of the regions and provinces of the country.

     As an organization, BABAE KA never received even a centavo of assistance from the Philippine government. It will support programs of government that it deems as pro-people. However, BABAE KA will be critical of programs that shall negatively affect Filipino women and the people, in general. 

     Unlike its accuser, BABAE KA has no political agenda or ideology except to advance the rights and welfare of women and the Filipinos, as a whole. BABAE KA views itself as a centrist organization and not a leftist or rightist coalition.  BABAE KA does not have multimillion pesos in campaign funds like AKBAYAN but it has the logistics garnered from its officers and members and the organizational network around the country that will guarantee a decent and possibly victorious campaign.

     BABAE KA urges AKBAYAN leaders to be true to their written program and to stop engaging in gutter politics and mudslinging. BABAE KA also urges AKBAYAN to be brave enough and militant enough to admit its mistake and apologize publicly.
