In 1985 a Constitutional Commission was established (by the Hawke Labor government) to review the Australian Constitution. It was seen as too partisan by many Liberals and the eventual referendum questions were not supported; leading to the lowest 'yes' vote count for any referendum in Australia (in 1988).

On January 1942, the Philippine Executive Commission or PEC was established as the temporary care-taker government of the Greater Manila area and eventually of the whole Philippines during the Japanese occupation of the country during World War II. The constitution existed until the Liberation of Manila in 1945.
In 1986, President Corazon Aquino dissolved the 1973 Constitution and called for its revision. From February 1986 to February 1987, the Philippines was run under a Provisionary Constitution called "Freedom Constitution" drafted by her executive secretary Joker Arroyo. On September 1986, the Constitutional Commission of 1986 was set up with all members appointed by Aquino. The revised Philippine Constitution was placed into a plebiscite with 76% Yes votes.
