The Elections for the Members of the House of Representatives were held on June 5, 1934, pursuant to the Philippine Organic Act of 1902 which prescribed elections for every three years. The ruling Nacionalista Consolidado was split anew into two factions: the Democrata Pro-Independencias who were in favor of the Hare–Hawes–Cutting Act (the "Pros"), and the Democraticos who were against it (the "Antis"). The "Antis" were led by Manuel Quezon while Sergio Osmeña headed the "Pros". The "Antis" won in the House while the "Pros" won in the Senate.
