(ACT-CIS), Ako Bicol Political Party (Ako Bicol), and Ang Bayan Muna  would succeed in winning three seats each in the House of Representatives, the maximum number of seats that any partylist can obtain in the election.

According to the Constitution selection or election of Partylists come from the labor, peasant, urban poor, indigenous cultural communities, women, youth, and such other sectors as may be provided by law, except the religious sector.
