Legislative districts of Marikina

The highly urbanized city of Marikina currently has two congressional districts. Every three years, each district elects one representative who will sit on their behalf in the House of Representatives. Each district also elects eight city councilors who will sit on their behalf in the City Council.

HistoryEdit

From 1907 until 1972, it was represented as part of the first district of Rizal. It was part of the representation of Region IV in the Interim Batasang Pambansa from 1978 to 1984. It was grouped with Pasig from 1984 to 1986 for representation in the Regular Batasang Pambansa, as part of the Legislative district of Pasig–Marikina. Marikina was given its own representation in the restored House of Representatives in 1987, and was divided into two districts after an amendment (Republic Act No. 9364[1]) to its city charter (Republic Act No. 8223[2]) was approved on December 15, 2006.

Current DistrictsEdit

Since 2007, the city has been divided into two districts with each district being represented by one representative in the House of Representatives. Since 2019 the city's delegation composes of a member of the Nationalist People's Coalition and a member of the Liberal Party.
