Kabataan Party on Monday said it has received reports from its poll watchers in Manila and Batangas that votes for the youth party-list are being counted for ANAK (Aangat Ating Kabuhayan) Party-list.
Sarah Katrina Maramag, Kabataan Party’s media officer, said this confirmed report from poll watchers might be a premeditated ploy to downgrade their votes.
Kabataan Party earlier expressed alarm over Comelec-issued letters they received that were addressed to “Kabataan Party-list (Anak Party-list)”. Last week, it submitted an official letter of complaint as it clarified that it did not apply for any nickname or acronym with the word “Anak”.
The party-list group changed its name from Anak ng Bayan to Kabataan after losing in the 2004 elections.
