SELECTION COMMITTEE INCEPTION PLAN

RATIONALE:  The Green Party of the Philippines or GPP Kalikasan Muna has decided to go beyond the usual environmental advocacy initiatives by participating in the scheduled electoral process in 2022. GPP Kalikasan Muna strongly believes that involvement in the actual crafting of important pro-environment legislations should be the next order for the Party.  Towards this end, the GPP Kalikasan Muna has formed a Selection Committee to process the formal and legal procedures of selection of candidate(s) as official representative(s) of the Party.

FORMATION OF THE SELECTION COMMITTEE:  In an online meeting of the GPP Kalikasan Muna National Council last February 14, 2021, the Party decided to form a Selection Committee which shall be tasked to prepare concrete policies, measures and procedures for the proper selection of the Party’s Nominees for submission to the Commission on Elections. The aim of forming a selection panel is to get together the most appropriate individuals who could bring certain skills and knowledge to the selection process which will help best determine the candidate/s as the official representative/s of the party. The Selection Committee shall be “ad hoc” in nature. After the selection process is accomplished and all necessary reportorial requirements are submitted to the President, the Selection Committee shall cease to exist.

MEMBERS OF THE SELECTION COMMITTEE: In the same meeting last February 14, 2021, the following were appointed members of the Selection Committee, therefore: Nash Kusain; Jeph Ramos; and, Anton Antonio. The three (3) members of the Selection Committee shall chose, from among themselves, who will be the Chairman for the Committee. On “seniority” considerations, Anton Antonio was designated as Chairman by the other two (2) Committee Members, Jeph Ramos and Nash Kusain.

PRIMARY PURPOSE OF CREATING A SELECTION COMMITTEE: The primary purpose of the creation of the Selection Committee is to facilitate a methodical, credible and transparent selection process in the nomination of GPP Kalikasan Muna Nominees.
