the Philippines

The Constitutional Convention of 1970 was called to change the existing Philippine Constitution at the time, which was made during the Commonwealth of the Philippines. Special elections were held on November 10, 1970 for the delegates of the Constitutional Convention who would represent the various provinces of the country.

Former Philippine President Carlos P. Garcia was sworn in as the President of the Constitutional Convention on June 11, 1971. However, he died three days after taking oath. Diosdado Macapagal, also a former Philippine President, replaced Garcia in the position.[1] Sotero H. Laurel served as the President Pro-Tempore of the convention.[2]

Aside from former Presidents Carlos P. Garcia and Diosdado Macapagal, other prominent delegates at the time were former Senators Raul Manglapus and Roseller T. Lim. Aside from them, other delegates went on to become influential political figures in the post-Marcos years, such as Hilario Davide, Jr., Marcelo Fernan, Sotero Laurel, Aquilino Pimentel, Jr., Teofisto Guingona, Jr., Raul Roco, Edgardo Angara, Richard Gordon, and Margarito Teves.
