The 1986 Constitution of the Philippines, also known as the "Freedom Constitution," was put into place by then-President Corazon C. Aquino following the People Power Revolution which overthrew Ferdinand Marcos. It was intended as a transitory constitution to govern the Philippines until a more permanent constitution could be drafted, and it abolished the Batasang Pambansa, the legislative body of the Marcos regime. The primary goal of the 1986 Constitution was to restore democracy and safeguard human rights after years of dictatorial rule. It included a Bill of Rights that guaranteed civil liberties, restored the bicameral Congress, abolished the Prime Minister position, and limited the President's term to six years without re-election. However, its validity was questioned by some due to it being ratified by President Aquino and not by a popular vote. The 1986 Constitution was eventually replaced a year later with the 1987 Constitution which was ratified through a nationwide plebiscite. The 1987 Constitution remains the governing document of the Philippines today.
