President Duterte has accused the so-called Makabayan bloc composed of progressive party-list groups such as Kabataan, Anakpawis, Bayan Muna, Alliance of Concerned Teachers, and Gabriela as “legal fronts” of the Communist Party of the Philippines.

Duterte said these progressive party-list groups have been using government funds to support communist rebels. Said partylist groups are again vying for seats in Congress in the May 2022 national elections.
