Philippines in the Spanish Cortes

The Philippines was given representation to the Spanish Cortez on 19 March 1812, with the approval of the Constitution of Cádiz. When Napoleon I was defeated at the Battle of Waterloo and his brother Joseph Bonaparte was removed from the Spanish throne, the Cádiz Constitution was replaced with a more conserative constitution that removed Philippine representation on the Cortes. The restoration of Philippine representation to the Cortes was one of the grievances by the Illustrados, the educated class during the late 19th century.

The Americal Era Congress

The Philippine Bill of 1902 mandated the creation of a two-chamber Philippine Legislature with the Philippine Commission as the Upper House and the Philippine Assembly as the Lower House. In 1916, the Jones Law abolished the Philippine Commission and a new bicameral Philippine Legislature consisting of a House of Representatives and a Senate was established.

The Commonwealth Congress

The 1935 Constitution established a unicameral National Assembly. In 1940, through an amendment, a bicameral Congress of the Philippines consisting of a House of Representatives and a Senate was created. Those elected in 1941 would not serve until 1945, as World War II erupted.

The Second Republic

The Japanese Forces establishyed the Second Philippine Republic and convened its own National Assembly. With the Japanese defeat in 1945, the Commonwealth and its Congress was restored. The same set up will continue until the Americans granted independence on 4 July 1946.

Independent Era

The First Congress of the Republic was formed on 04 July 1946. Successive Congresses were elected until President Ferdinand Marcos declared martial law on 23 September 1972. In 1970, Marcos had convened a constitutional convention to revise the 1935 constitution. The 1973 Constitution abolished the bicameral Congress and created a unicameral National Assembly, which would ultimately be known as the Batasang Pambansa, convened in 1978.

After the 1986 People Power Revolution which deposed President Marcos, President Corazon Aquino then ruled by decree. She appointed a constitutional commission that drafted the 1987 Constitution which created a bicameral Congress of the Philippines.
