The 1965 Philippine presidential and vice presidential elections were held on November 9, 1965. Incumbent President Diosdado Macapagal lost his opportunity to get a second full term as president of the Philippines to Senate President Ferdinand Marcos. His running mate, Senator Gerardo Roxas, lost to former vice president Fernando Lopez. Emmanuel Pelaez, who resigned in the Cabinet and from the Liberal Party, then sought the Nacionalista Party presidential nomination and lost it to Marcos, did not run for vice president and instead ran in the House of Representatives as an independent. An unprecedented twelve candidates ran for president; however, nine of those won 200 votes or less.

This was the first election where all of the major presidential candidates were born after the end of the Spanish colonization of the Philippines.
