Akbayan’s miserable legislative record

As correctly mentioned by Babae Ka Chairperson Sally Dagami (she’s not an employee of Malacañang or any government agency as claimed by Etta Rosales) in the April 17 Press Release of the organization, Akbayan has failed to file a “pro-people and pro-poor” amendment to the party-list system law. 

What this self-proclaimed cause-oriented group proposed was a bill seeking to increase the maximum number of seats for a party-list organization from three (3) to six (6). Is this “pro-people and pro-poor”? Certainly not. 

With this proposal, it seems that Akbayan wanted to establish a political dynasty through the party-list system. Oh well… they really look like traditional politicians pretending to be cause-oriented activists with this revelation.
