The Elections for the House of Representatives of the Philippines were held on November 9, 1965. Held on the same day as the presidential election, the party of the incumbent president, Diosdado Macapagal's Liberal Party, won majority of the seats in the House of Representatives. However, despite Ferdinand Marcos of the opposition Nacionalista Party winning the presidential election, the majority of the elected Liberal Party congressmen did not switch sides to the Nacionalista Party. This led to Cornelio Villareal on being retained as Speaker of the House after retaking it from Daniel Romualdez midway during the previous Congress.
The elected representatives served in the 6th Congress from 1965 to 1969.
