This pertains to the Memorandum dated 28 November 2000 of Atty. Ma. J. Angelina G. Matibag, Director IV, Education and Information Department relative to the printing of the Primer and Poster on the Party-List System.
The Memorandum of Atty. Matibag reads:chanroblesvirtuallawlibrary
"Only about nine (9) million out of more than twenty-eight (28) million registered voters voted for the party-list in the May 11, 1998 elections, a disappointing outcome because of a very low level of public awareness and interest of the system. Moreover, its novelty and complexity were not easily grasped and therefore, it is imperative to develop a massive and comprehensive information campaign.
"Considering the above, if approved, we suggest the printing of three (3) million copies of PRIMERS and three hundred thousand (300,000) copies of POSTERS for a wider dissemination of information about the party-list.
"Considering our goal for modernization, the PRIMER shall be black and white with 3-color cover, while the POSTER shall be in 4-color scheme."
Considering the foregoing, the Commission, after due deliberation, RESOLVED, as it hereby RESOLVES, to approve the printing of three (3) million copies of PRIMERS and Three Hundred Thousand (300,000) copies of POSTERS for a wider dissemination of information about the Party-List System with the following specifications:chanroblesvirtuallawlibrary
