The Legislative Districts of Lanao del Norte, namely the first and second districts are the representations of the Province of Lanao del Norte in the Philippine House of Representatives. Lanao del Norte was part of the representation of Lanao until 1961, when it was granted its own representation. It became part of the representation of Region XII from 1978 to 1984. In 1986, it was divided into two legislative districts.
The passage of Republic Act 9724 separates the highly-urbanized city of Iligan from the first congressional district of Lanao del Norte to form its own congressional district starting in the 2010 elections. Republic Act 9774 enacted on November 17, 2009 reapportions the remaining population of the province between its two districts.
Famous quotes containing the words legislative and/or districts:
“However much we may differ in the choice of the measures which should guide the administration of the government, there can be but little doubt in the minds of those who are really friendly to the republican features of our system that one of its most important securities consists in the separation of the legislative and executive powers at the same time that each is acknowledged to be supreme, in the will of the people constitutionally expressed.”
—Andrew Jackson (17671845)
“Cities need old buildings so badly it is probably impossible for vigorous streets and districts to grow without them.... for really new ideas of any kindno matter how ultimately profitable or otherwise successful some of them might prove to bethere is no leeway for such chancy trial, error and experimentation in the high-overhead economy of new construction. Old ideas can sometimes use new buildings. New ideas must use old buildings.”
—Jane Jacobs (b. 1916)
