“Still a long fight ahead.”

This is what the Philippine Educators Alliance for Community Empowerment (PEACE) Party-list had to say over its inclusion among 48 party-lists that are on track to get a seat in Congress were elections to be held during the survey period.

In Pulse Asia’s 2022 Party-list survey, PEACE PL got a 0.7 percent voter preference.

“Of course we are grateful for the trust and confidence of the Filipino public on the kind of service that we can offer. However, we are still months away from election day and we still have a long fight ahead,” PEACE Party list president and first nominee Marie Paz T. Abante said.

“The survey is just a snapshot of a point in time. Marami pang maaaring magbago sa loob ng ilang buwan kaya hindi po tayo makakampante,” she added.

In Pulse Asia’s 2022 Party-list survey, PEACE PL got a 0.7 percent voter preference.

The nationwide survey, which was was conducted from Jan. 19 to 24, 2022, had 2,400 respondents aged 18 and above, with a ± 2% error margin at the 95% confidence level.

According to the survey, among the 177 party-lists in the May 2022 elections, 48 groups would get 63 seats in the House of Representatives.

Abante, a long-time educator, said that PEACE PL’s strong showing so far is a morale booster for the educators who make up its ranks.

“Nadidinig hindi lang ang boses ng mga guro at school-workers, kundi maging ang madlang Pilipino. Ang panawagan natin, mas malawak na representasyon at pondo para sa sektor ng edukasyon.

“Makakaasa po ang mga kababayan natin na kung tuluyan nating maitawid ang PEACE PL sa Kongreso, magiging aktibo tayo sa pagsulong sa interes ng sektor,” Abante also said.
