Ahon said in a statement that it speaks for the rights and welfare of overseas Filipino workers and their families as well as organizations of expatriates and immigrants.

Its legislative agenda includes: expansion of the study-now, pay-later education program to benefit more poor, deserving youth; low-cost housing; health care assistance; return of the coconut levy fund to the farmer beneficiaries; collateral-free loans to help create and launch small businesses; and “good governance.”

Ahon’s campaign also stresses the role of the part-list system in developing and educating the electorate on correct and intelligent voting on election day. (Mark Navales contributed to this report)
