Legislative districts of Zamboanga City

This article is part of a series on the
politics and government of
the Philippines

The current two Legislative districts of Zamboanga City are the representation of the City of Zamboanga in the Philippine House of Representatives. Zamboanga City was part of the representation of the Zamboanga Province from 1935 to 1953, of Zamboanga del Sur from 1953 to 1972 and of Region IX from 1978 to 1984. It was granted its own representation in 1984 by the Batasang Pambansa. It was divided into 2 districts by virtue of Republic Act No. 9269[1] on March 19, 2004. Veterans Avenue is the dividing line of the two districts.

Currently, there is a proposal to divide Zamboanga into three (3) legislative districts since according to the 2007 Census of Population, Zamboanga has a population of 774,000.
