Pinoy Holidays : Palace declares June 30 as special non-working holiday


PGMA declares June 30 as a special
non-working holiday

President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has declared June 30, the historic inaugural of President-elect Benigno Aquino III, as a special non-working holiday.

The President, who ends her nine-year term at the end of the month, signed the holiday proclamation following the recommendation made by Executive Secretary Leandro Mendoza.

Mendoza earlier said he recommended the holiday declaration to allow Filipinos to witness the formal assumption to office by the country's 15th President.

Details of the holiday declaration will be divulged by Palace officials later today.

President Arroyo is mandated to leave the office after nine years in power on June 30, paving the way for the assumption of her successor.

Aquino, son of democracy icon the late President Corazon Aquino, has promised to resolve lingering problems of poverty and corruption in his six-year term.
