Legislative districts of Camarines Norte

The Legislative Districts of Camarines Norte are the representations of the province of Camarines Norte in the various national legislatures of the Philippines. The province is currently represented in the lower house of the Congress of the Philippines through its first and second districts.

HistoryEdit

Camarines Norte was represented as part of the first and second districts of Ambos Camarines prior to being granted its own representation, after the division of Ambos Camarines in 1919 into Norte and Sur. From 1978 to 1984, it was part of the representation of Region V.

The passage of Republic Act 9725[1] abolished the lone district and divided the province into two districts starting in the 2010 elections.
