Imus, Cavite
, Philippines
Philippines
, on December 31, 1896. This was convened in order to settle the leadership dispute between the two factions.

The assembly, presided by Andres Bonifacio
Andres Bonifacio
, was to discuss whether to retain the current Katipunan government or to set up a new revolutionary government . The Magdalo supported the idea of having a revolutionary government while the Magdiwang favored the old Katipunan government . The assembly, however, failed to have a firm resolution. According to Santiago Alvarez and Artemio Ricarte
Artemio Ricarte
, the assembly agreed to appoint Bonifacio as the head of a legislative committee and to authorize him to appoint members he considers worthy. It is, however, uncertain whether Bonifacio did appoint members of the committee. At this meeting also, a Magdalo engineer and general named Edilberto Evangelista submitted a draft of a constitution requested by the two factions. Bonifacio ignored the constitution since the Katipunan already had its own laws.
