MANILA -- Malacanang said the public can access details from a Palace website of the Philippine Constitution and its history as the country marked on Saturday the 25th Constitution Day.
Former President Corazon C. Aquino proclaimed in 1988 that February 2 would be a national commemoration for the ratification of the 1987 Constitution on February 2, 1987.
As a contribution to the observance of Constitution Day, the office of the Presidential spokesperson, together with the Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office, is making available to the public information about the Constitution and its history.
These include a briefer on the history of the constitutions, as well as the history of the Constitution Day observance in the country.
There will also be an educational infographic map charting the distribution of delegates to the 1934 and 1971 Constitutional Conventions.
It is also presenting the continuation of the government’s digital colorization project, colorized archival images of the 1899 Malolos Congress, the 1934 Constitutional Convention and the 1943 election of the National Assembly. (SDR/Sunnex)
