IaEdu I am not sure if your having a problem sending the list of multiple choices or trying to add an option to the options already in the select list. The latter sounds strange so I’ll address the former. I apologize for not using Jquery. I don’t like it and don’t use it. Answer in pure, raw JavaScript.

But first lets correct your HTML:
You have your <select> in a LABEL inside a Paragraph inside a DIV. A select does not need to be in a div. It exists on it’s own. It never should be a paragraph.

The select has a name="items_lists" and an id="choices-multiple". name is only needed if your sending the <form> and not using JS. And that is what I’d suggest you do.

Your <label> is setting the for to the select name. Wrong it should target the id.

While we may place an <input> inside the label, it’s not good to do that for a <select>

The last line is just to show you the results. The "selected" variable can be sent to your PHP file.

<label for="choices-multiple">Please Select The Items</label><br>
<select id="choices_multiple" size="5" multiple>
  <option value="Item 1">Item 1</option>
  <option value="Item 2">Item 2</option>
  <option value="Item 3">Item 3</option>
  <option value="Item 4">Item 4</option>
  <option value="Item 5">Item 5</option>
<button id="Pick">I Made My Selections</button><br><br>
<p id="out"></p>

document.getElementById("Pick").addEventListener("click", function() {
  let multiSelect = document.getElementById("choices_multiple").selectedOptions;
  let selected = "";
  for (let i=0; i<multiSelect.length; i++) {
    selected += multiSelect[i].label+",";
  document.getElementById("out").innerHTML = selected;
