This section introduces the objectives of the chapter and discusses the importance of understanding the past to propose solutions for present-day problems.
00:01
Learning objectives include analyzing social, political, economic, and cultural issues in the Philippines through history.
The chapter aims to propose recommendations or solutions based on the understanding of root causes and anticipation of future scenarios.
The first half of the chapter focuses on the evolution of the Philippine Constitution, covering the constitutions of 1897, 1899, and 1935.
This section provides an overview of the evolution of the Philippine Constitution.
05:51
The Constitution of the Philippines has been in effect since 1987.
Earlier constitutions attempted by Filipinos include the 1897 Constitution of Biak-na-Bato.
The organs of the government under the Biak-na-Bato Constitution included the Supreme Council and the Assembly of Representatives.
After the revolution, a new constitution was created in Biak-na-Bato, which sought the separation of the Philippines from the Spanish monarchy and the formation of an independent state called the Philippine Republic.
12:22
The revolutionaries convened to create a new constitution and elect a new council of government and representatives.
The Biak-na-Bato Constitution was never fully implemented due to the truce signed between the Spanish and Philippine revolutionary army.
The preamble of the Biak-na-Bato Constitution emphasized the desire for Philippine independence and the formation of their own government.
The Malolos Constitution was drafted and promulgated after the defeat of the Spanish by the Americans in the Battle of Manila Bay.
The Philippine Constitution of 1899 was influenced by various countries and prior constitutional projects in the Philippines.
17:55
The constitution was titled the Political Constitution of 1899 and written in Spanish.
It had 39 articles divided into 14 titles, with additional provisions and sections.
The constitution drew inspiration from the Spanish Constitution of 1812, as well as the charters of Belgium, Mexico, Brazil, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Guatemala, and the French Constitution of 1793.
Prior constitutional projects in the Philippines, such as the Cartilla and the Sangguniang Hukuman, also influenced the Malolos Constitution.
The section discusses the legal principles underlying the Philippine revolution, including popular sovereignty, natural rights, freedom of belief, separation of church and state, and the form of government.
23:55
The Filipino people delegated governmental functions while retaining sovereignty.
Title 4 details the natural rights and popular sovereignty of Filipinos.
Title 3 Article 5 recognizes freedom and equality of beliefs, as well as the separation of church and state.
The form of government is popular, representative, and responsible, with a unicameral legislative body called the Assembly of Representatives.
The section discusses the powers given to the body, including the right of impeachment, and the structure of the executive power in the Malolos Constitution of 1899.
30:16
Powers such as the right of impeaching the president, cabinet members, the chief justice of the supreme court, and the solicitor general were given to the body.
A permanent commission of seven elected by the assembly was granted specific powers by the constitution.
Executive power was vested in the president, who was elected by a constituent assembly of the assembly of representatives and special representatives.
The 1899 Malolos Constitution was never enforced due to the ongoing war and the Philippines becoming a territory of the United States.
The video discusses the evolution of the Philippine Constitution, including the Philippine Autonomy Act of 1916 and the passage of the Tydings-McDuffie Act in 1934.
36:26
The Philippine Autonomy Act of 1916, also known as the Jones Law, modified the structure of the Philippine government by removing the Philippine Commission and establishing a senate elected by Filipino voters.
The Tydings-McDuffie Act, passed in 1934, provided authority and defined mechanisms for the establishment of a formal constitution through a constitutional convention.
The members of the constitutional convention were elected, with Claro M. Recto unanimously elected as the president.
The section discusses the creation of the Commonwealth of the Philippines and the amendments made to its constitution.
41:51
The constitution established the Commonwealth of the Philippines as a transitional administration.
Initially, it provided for a unicameral national assembly with a six-year term for the president and vice president.
In 1940, the constitution was amended to create a bicameral congress and limited the term of the president and vice president to four years.
The dominant influence on the constitution was American, but it also had traces of the Malolos constitution, German, Spanish, Mexican, South American, and English constitutions.
