The Elections for the House of Representatives of the Philippines were held on May 11, 1998. Held on the same day as the presidential election, the party of the incumbent president, Fidel V. Ramos' Lakas-NUCD-UMDP, won majority of the seats in the House of Representatives. For the first time since the People Power Revolution, a party won majority of the seats in the House; Lakas had a seat over the majority. This is also the first Philippine elections that included the party-list system.
There were 51 seats for sectoral representatives that were contested. Each party has to get 2% of the national vote to win one seat; they'd win an additional seat for every 2% of the vote, up to the maximum three seats. Only 15 party-list representatives were elected under this rule. Eventually, the "2–4–6%" rule was ruled as unconstitutional by the Supreme Court, and 24 more winners were proclaimed. The remaining 12 seats were never filled up.
