MANILA - The Commission on Elections (Comelec) on Saturday released a list of 134 party-list groups that may be included in the official ballots for the 2019 midterm polls, adding that the list could still be trimmed down.

The poll body said it was still in the process of resolving several disqualification cases 4 months before the May 13 elections.

"Note that this is NOT the final list. The number assignments, however, are final," Comelec spokesperson James Jimenez said in a statement.

The Comelec earlier said party-list groups would not appear alphabetically on the 2019 ballots as sectoral groups have been "obsessed" with affixing "AAA" in their names to stay on the top part of the ballot.

"It was apparent that party-list groups were adopting names that were fairly obsessive about getting to the top so you could see names that were starting with ‘AAA,’ not having anything to do at all with the advocacy being represented," Jimenez said in an interview in December 2018.

The Comelec was hoping that the names of party-list groups would "become more reflective of their actual advocacy," he said.

As of January 26, 2019 the following party-lists would be included in the ballot for the May elections:
