Today in History : February 2nd

On this date in...

1921: Mindoro was founded by a group of Spanish mission. During the early years, the Spanish administer Mindoro as a part of Batangas that was then called Bonbon. It was only in the 17th century that Mindoro was separated from Batangas with Puerto Galera as its capital. Mindoro is considered to be the 7th largest island of the Philippines.

1987: Philippine voters went to the polls in a nationwide plebiscite to approve or reject a proposed new constitution that was supported by Pres. Corazon Aquino and opposed by the far right and the radical left. With early returns indicating overwhelming approval of the charter, Aquino?s government was assured of a momentous victory in most regions of the country. The new constitution replaced the 1973 constitution, which Aquino had abolished after defeating Pres. Ferdinand Marcos in the February 1986 election.
