The Legislative Districts of Quezon City are the representations of Quezon City in the various national legislatures of the Philippines. The city is currently represented in the lower house of the Congress of the Philippines through its first, second, third, fourth, fifth, and sixth districts.

History[edit]

From its creation in 1939 to 1972, Quezon City was represented as part of Rizal Province, with the western areas that formerly belonged to Caloocan, Mandaluyong and San Juan voting as part of that province's first district, and the eastern areas that formerly belonged to Marikina, Montalban (now Rodriguez), Pasig and San Mateo voting in the second district.

In the disruption caused by the Second World War, Quezon City was incorporated into the City of Greater Manila on January 1, 1942 by virtue of Manuel Quezon's Executive Order No. 400 as a wartime emergency measure. Greater Manila was represented by two delegates in the National Assembly of the Japanese-sponsored Second Philippine Republic: one was the city mayor (an ex officio member), while the other was elected through a city-wide assembly of KALIBAPI members during the Japanese occupation of the Philippines. Upon the restoration of the Philippine Commonwealth in 1945, Quezon City's divided representation between the two districts of Rizal was retained; this remained so until 1972.

The city was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region IV from 1978 to 1984. Quezon City residents first elected representatives separate from Rizal in the 1984 election, where four representatives, elected at-large, represented the city at the Regular Batasang Pambansa.

Quezon City was reapportioned into four congressional districts under the new Constitution[1] which was proclaimed on February 11, 1987. It elected members to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.

By virtue of Republic Act No. 10170[2] approved on July 2, 2012, the fifth and sixth districts were created out of the second district. Residents of the two new districts began to elect their own representatives beginning in the 2013 elections.
