Manuel L. Quezon
MANUEL L. QUEZON (born MANUEL LUíS QUEZON Y MOLINA; August 19, 1878 – August 1, 1944) was a Filipino statesman, soldier, and politician who served as president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines from 1935 to 1944. He was the first Filipino to head a government of the entire Philippines (as opposed to the government of previous Philippine states), and is considered to have been the second president of the Philippines , after Emilio Aguinaldo (1899–1901). During his presidency, Quezon tackled the problem of landless peasants in the countryside. His other major decisions include the reorganization of the islands' military defense, approval of a recommendation for government reorganization, the promotion of settlement and development in Mindanao, dealing with the foreign stranglehold on Philippine trade and commerce, proposals for land reform, and opposing graft and corruption within the government. He established a government-in-exile in the U.S. with the outbreak of the war and the threat of Japanese invasion. It was during his exile in the U.S. that he died of tuberculosis at Saranac Lake, New York . He was buried in the Arlington National Cemetery until the end of World War II, when his remains were moved to Manila . His final resting place is the Quezon Memorial Circle

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
