1931 - Juan Sumulong, "Brains of the Opposition" during the ascendancy of Manuel L. Quezon,  first President of the Philippines during the American Imperialist Occupation, resigns from the Democrata party due to poor health; one of the political figures opposed to the Hare-Hawes Cutting Act that grants  the United States continued sovereignty over U.S. Military Reservations in the country, Sumulong would later bitterly denounce what will be the coalition of Quezon's Partido Nacionalista and the opposition party of Sergio Osmena, believing that political representation should be balanced to prevent oligarchy.
