Legislative districts of Quezon City

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
the Philippines

The Legislative Districts of Quezon City, namely the first, second, third and fourth districts, are the representations of Quezon City in the Philippine House of Representatives.

From its creation in 1939 to 1972, Quezon City, which was also for a time the national capital, 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, Rodriguez, Pasig and San Mateo voting in the second district. From 1978 to 1984, it was part of the representation of Region IV, and from 1984 to 1986 it elected four assemblymen at-large.

Since the restoration of the House of Representatives in 1987, Quezon City has been divided into 4 legislative districts. In July 2012, the Second District was divided into three (3) legislative districts, bringing the total to six (6) districts.
