This research is about the three landmark cases Atong Paglaum, et. al. v. COMELEC, Banat, et. al. v. COMELEC, and Ang Bagong Bayani, et. al. v. COMELEC regarding its reversal and its effect on the future of the party list system, but will mainly focus on Atong Paglaum v. COMELEC, because of the new parameters set by the Supreme court. The researchers will analyze the new parameters of the Supreme Court on the true underlying principles of the 1987 Constitution and the statutory principles of the Party-List System Act. It will also include a discussion on whether or not the Paty-List System Law should be amended or should the Party-List System be abolished, and the repercussion of doing such.
