Legislative district of Ifugao

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

The lone Legislative District of Ifugao is the representation of the Province of Ifugao in the Philippine House of Representatives.

In 1916 the undivided Mountain Province (of which Ifugao was a sub-province) was provided representation in the Philippine Legislature. Initially, its three delegates were appointed by the Governor-General. The residents of the Mountain Province only began electing representatives through popular vote in 1935 by virtue of Act No. 4203; this law also provided the territorial coverage for each representative district. The sub-province of Ifugao was then represented as part of the Mountain Province's third district.

During the Japanese occupation of the Philippines, the undivided Mountain Province sent two representatives to the National Assembly of the Second Philippine Republic. Upon the restoration of the Philippine Commonwealth in 1945, the sub-province of Ifugao continued to be represented as part of the third district of the Mountain Province. This lasted until 1969, following the enactment of Republic Act No. 4695 on June 18, 1966, which made Ifugao a full-fledged province. The new province of Ifugao began electing its own representative in 1969.

The province was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region II from 1978 to 1984, and elected one representative to the Regular Batasang Pambansa in 1984. Ifugao retained its lone congressional district under the new Constitution which took effect on February 7, 1987, and elected its member to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.
