Abstract

This paper attempts to review how the Supreme Court interpreted local autonomy in the Philippines through the decisions it rendered from 1991 to 2016, in the hope of outlining and summarizing the meaning and extent of local autonomy within the framework of the 1987 Constitution, the Local Government Code of 1991 and other laws. More particularly, the paper examines the interplay between local autonomy, on the one hand, and executive and legislative powers on the other.
