Legislative districts of Sultan Kudarat
The Legislative districts of Sultan Kudarat are the representations of the province of Sultan Kudarat 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 congressional districts.
The enactment of Presidential Decree No. 341 on 22 November 1973 created the Province of Sultan Kudarat out of the reduced Cotabato Province's southern municipalities. This new province was represented in the Interim Batasang Pambansa as part of Region XII from 1978 to 1984.
Under the new Constitution which was proclaimed on 11 February 1987, the province constituted a lone congressional district, and elected its member to the restored House of Representatives starting that same year.
The approval of Republic Act No. 9357 on 10 October 2006 increased Sultan Kudarat's representation by reapportioning the province into two congressional districts, which elected their separate representatives starting in the 2007 elections.
