History[ edit ] Representation to the legislature traces its origin to the Spanish era, when the Philippines was granted very limited representation to the Spanish Cortes.
During the American period, when the Philippine Bill of was enacted, the first Philippine Assembly was established as the lower house and the then-existing Philippine Commission as the upper house.
Representation in the assembly was apportioned among the provinces with respect to their population, provided that no province shall have less than one member. Inthe Philippine Legislature was reconstituted with a Senate as the upper house and the Assembly retained as the lower house.
The Senate elected members through Senatorial Districts, a grouping of provinces and areas of the country, while the Assembly retained its way of representation. During the Commonwealth period, the Philippine Legislature was abolished, and a unicameral National Assembly was established, with representation being like that of the Philippine Assembly, each province having at least one member depending on its population.
With the passage of the Amendments to the Constitution, a bicameral Congress was established with a House of Representatives and a Senate. The House of Representatives way of representation was like that of the Philippine Assembly, while the Senate's members were elected at large. With the coming of the Interim Batasang Pambansa and the regular Batasan during the Marcos regime, representation was done in many ways: However, with the advent of the Constitution, the Batasan was scrapped and the Congress was restored.
The present way of electing delegates to the House of Representatives is through legislative districts apportioned among the provinces, cities and the Metropolitan Manila Area and through a party-list system of registered national, regional and sectoral parties or organizations.Article I Legislative Branch Signed in convention September 17, Ratified June 21, A portion of Article I, Section 2, was changed by the 14th Amendment; a portion of Section 9 was changed by the 16th Amendment; a portion of Section 3 was changed by the 17th Amendment; and a portion of Section 4 was changed by the 20th Amendment.
