Legislative Districts of Antipolo City

The Legislative districts of Antipolo City, namely the first and second districts, are the current representations of the city of Antipolo in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From 1907 to 1972, Antipolo was represented in Congress as part of the second district of Rizal. The province of Rizal was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region IV-A from 1978 to 1984, and elected two representatives at-large to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984

Antipolo was placed in the first district of Rizal after the reorganization of the province's legislative districts under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987. Upon its conversion into a city through Republic Act No. 8508 which was approved on February 13, 1998, and ratified on April 4, 1998, Antipolo was separated from the first district and elected its own representative starting in the 1998 elections. The city was divided into two congressional districts on December 22, 2003, by virtue of RA 9232, electing two representatives beginning in 2004.

Famous quotes containing the words city, districts and/or legislative:

    half-way up the hill, I see the Past
    Lying beneath me with its sounds and sights,—
    A city in the twilight dim and vast,
    With smoking roofs, soft bells, and gleaming lights,—
    And hear above me on the autumnal blast
    The cataract of Death far thundering from the heights.
    Henry Wadsworth Longfellow (1809–1882)

    Cities need old buildings so badly it is probably impossible for vigorous streets and districts to grow without them.... for really new ideas of any kind—no matter how ultimately profitable or otherwise successful some of them might prove to be—there is no leeway for such chancy trial, error and experimentation in the high-overhead economy of new construction. Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.
    Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)

    Freedom of men under government is to have a standing rule to live by, common to every one of that society, and made by the legislative power vested in it; a liberty to follow my own will in all things, when the rule prescribes not, and not to be subject to the inconstant, unknown, arbitrary will of another man.
    John Locke (1632–1704)
