The Elections for the House of Representatives of the Philippines were held on November 8, 1949. Held on the same day as the presidential election, the party of the incumbent president, Elpidio Quirino's Liberal Party, won majority of the seats in the House of Representatives.

This will be the first time in what would be a pattern in which the party of the incumbent president wins the elections for the members of the House of Representatives.[1]

The elected representatives will serve in the 2nd Congress from 1949 to 1953.
