The Constitutional Commissions refer to the constitutional bodies or agencies created or maintained by the Constitution of the Republic of the Philippines.


The Constitution of the Philippines provides for the creation of the three Constitutional Commissions: the Civil Service Commission; the Commission on Elections; and the Commission on Audit. The Civil Service Commission (CSC) used to be a statutory body under the 1935 Constitution until it became a Constitutional Commission under the 1973 Constitution. The Commission on Elections (COMELEC) was established by virtue of Resolution No.3 amending the 1935 Constitution on April 11, 1940. The Commission on Audit, formerly known as the General Auditing Office under the 1935 Constitution, was established under the 1973 Constitution.
