MANILA -- Election lawyer Rudyard Avila believes the Commission on Elections (Comelec) should have proclaimed the Senior Citizens party-list group as winner in the mid-term elections.

Avila says the party-list group has not been disqualified with finality, adding its internal term-sharing agreement is not a basis for disqualification.

He adds Senior Citizens party-list is entitled to two seats in Congress after getting around 600,000 votes in the recent polls.

Avila stresses the need to review the constitutional provisions on the party-list system.
