Compare malolos constitution and 1987 Constitution?

It is known as the Constitución Política de Malolos and it was written in Spanish. Following the declaration of independence from Spain, by the Revolutionary Government, a congress was held in Malolos, Bulacan in to draw up a constitution. It was the first republican constitution in Asia. The document states that the people has exclusive sovereignty. It states basic civil rights, separated the church and state, and called for the creation of an Assembly of Representatives which would act as the legislative body. It also calls for a Presidential form of government with the president elected for a term of four years by a majority of the Assembly. The Malolos Constitution established Spanish as the official language of the Philippines. The1899 Malolos Constitution is the authentic and official constitution of La Republica Filipina (Philippine Republic). The current so called constitution of the Philippines, the 1987 Constitution is a farce and unacceptable to all Filipinos since it was forced upon them by an occupying power--the United States--based on the illegal 1935 Commonwealth Constitution.

How was suffrage extended in the first half of the 19th century?

Suffrage has changed extensively since the first United States elections. In 1868, the passing of the 14th Amendment to the Constitution declared that all persons born or naturalized are citizens of the US and of the state where they reside, extending voting rights to these people. In 1870, the 15th Amendment guaranteed voting rights to all male Americans, regardless of their race, color, or previous condition of servitude, granting voting rights to African-American men and any freed slaves. In 1920, the 19th Amendment granted suffrage to women, and in 1971, the 26th Amendment lowered the age of suffrage to 18 years old. Despite these changes to the US Constitution, not all Americans have equal voting rights. The right to enforce and regulate suffrage falls to the states themselves, and some states still have strict policies on the suffrage of individuals or groups.
