Bayan Muna first nominee Teddy Casiño said the group seeks to continue to represent the voice of the poor sector and the marginalized in Congress.

“Ipagpapatuloy namin sa Bayan Muna ang laban para itaas ang kita at bigyan ng dangal at hustisya ang ating mga manggagawa at magsasaka. Ipaglalaban namin na ibaba ang presyo ng kuryente, pagkain, gasolina, at iba pang bilihin (Bayan Muna will continue the fight to raise the income of Filipino workers and give them dignity. We will fight to lower the prices of electricity, food, fuel, and other commodities)” Casiño said.

“Itigil ang kurapsyon at itaguyod ang mabuting pamamahala at mahusay na serbisyo. Bigyan ng katarungan ang mga inaapi at ipinagkain ng karapatan at ipagtanggol ang ating soberanya sa West Philippine Sea (Stop corruption and promote good governance and good service. Give justice to the oppressed and deprived of rights and defend our sovereignty in the West Philippine Sea),” he added.

Meanwhile, Kabataan partylist vowed to continue to champion the rights of the youth for education, health, livelihood, and human rights.

Incumbent Representative Sarah Elago accompanied Kabataan nation president and first nominee Raoul Manuel in filing the CONA.

“Pag nagkakaisa ang kabataan at ang mamamayan kaya po nating maging pwersa na maniningil ng hustisya at kumawala sa bulok na sistema (When the youth and the people unite, we can be a force that will demand justice and get rid of the rotten system),” Manuel said.

“Nitong mga nagdaang taon, tinulak natin ang pagsasabatas ng libreng edukasyon, free public wifi, at iba pang makabuluhang reporma. Ngayon, yayanigin natin ang mga nangakong maglingkod, pero himbing na himbing sa kanyang tulog. Magpaiyak tayo ng mga tiwaling opisyal (In the recent years, we have pushed for the enactment of free education, free public wifi, and other significant reforms. Today, we will shake those who have promised to serve, but are sound asleep. Let us make corrupt officials cry).”
