1971 - Former President Carlos P. Garcia is elected president of the 1971 Constitutional Convention drafted to revise the 1935 Philippine Charter, with ex-President Diosdado P. Macapagal being elected vice-President; in three days, Garcia will die from heart attack and will be remembered for his administration's near iconic legacy  of "Filipino First" policy which put the interests of the Filipino people above those of foreigners and of the ruling party.
