Barangay State
In early Philippine history, the BARANGAY was a complex sociopolitical unit which scholars have historically considered the dominant organizational pattern among the various peoples of the Philippine archipelago . These sociopolitical units were sometimes also referred to as BARANGAY STATES , but are more properly referred to using the technical term "polity ," rather than "state", so they are usually simply called "barangays." Early chroniclers record that the name evolved from the term _balangay _, which refers to a plank boat widely used by various cultures of the Philippine archipelago prior to the arrival of European colonizers. Some barangays were well-organized independent villages, consisting of thirty to a hundred households. Other barangays - most notably those in Maynila , Tondo , Pangasinan, Cebu, Bohol, Butuan, Cotabato, and Sulu - were integrated into large cosmopolitan polities. Anthropologist F. Landa Jocano defines this period of the barangay states' dominance - approximately the 14th to the 16th centuries - as the "Barangic Phase" of early Philippine history. Historical Barangays should not be confused with present-day Philippine barrios , which were officially renamed _barangays _ by the Philippine Local Government Code of 1991 as a reference to historical barangays

Politics Of The Philippines
Elections are administered by an independent Commission on Elections every three years starting 1992. Held every second Monday of May, the winners in the elections take office on the following June 30. Local government is produced by local government units from the provinces, cities, municipalities and barangays. While the most regions do not have political power, and exist merely for administration purposes, autonomous regions have expanded powers more than the other local government units. While local government units enjoy autonomy, much of their budget is derived from allocations from the national government, putting their true autonomy in doubt.

Constitution Of The Philippines
The CONSTITUTION OF THE PHILIPPINES (Filipino : _Saligang Batas ng Pilipinas_) is the constitution or supreme law of the Republic of the Philippines . Its final draft was completed by the Constitutional Commission on October 12, 1986 and was ratified by a nationwide plebiscite on February 2, 1987. Three other constitutions have effectively governed the country in its history: the 1935 Commonwealth Constitution, the 1973 Constitution, and the 1986 Freedom Constitution. The earliest constitution establishing a "Philippine Republic," the 1899 Malolos Constitution, was never fully implemented throughout the Philippines and did not establish a state that was internationally recognized, due in great part to the impending American occupation during its adoption

Constitutional Reform In The Philippines
CONSTITUTIONAL REFORM IN THE PHILIPPINES, also known as CHARTER CHANGE or CHA-CHA, refers to the political and legal processes needed to amend the current 1987 Constitution of the Philippines . Under the common interpretation of the Constitution, amendments can be proposed by one of three methods: a People\'s Initiative , a Constituent Assembly or a Constitutional Convention . A fourth method, by both houses passing a joint concurrent resolution , with a three-fourth supermajority , has been proposed by House Speaker Feliciano Belmonte, Jr. who subsequently submitted to the House of Representatives "Resolution of Both Houses No. 1". The "simple legislation as the means to amend" would require approval only by both Houses voting separately. All proposed amendments, regardless of the method of proposal, must be ratified by a majority vote in a national referendum . There have been five constitutional conventions in Philippine history: * Tejeros Convention (1897) * Malolos Congress (1899) * 1934 Constitutional Convention * 1973 Constitutional Convention * 1987 Constitutional Commission While no amendment to the 1987 Constitution has succeeded, there has been several high-profile attempts. None reached the ratification by referendum stage
