On November 26, 2021, the Ateneo School of Government, represented by Ateneo Professional Schools Vice President John Paul C. Vergara, sealed its partnership with GMA Network, along with the country’s 50 other leading organizations in the fields of media, education, telecommunications, business, law, and public service, through a virtual Eleksyon 2022 Partnerships Launch event.
In the event, GMA Network Chairman and CEO Atty. Felipe L.

He also emphasized their aim to uphold the primary values which are honesty, integrity, and truth in the upcoming 2022 elections.
