Oct 25 elections, special

non-working holiday


MALACANANG has declared October 25- Monday as a special non-working holiday to give time for Filipinos to go out and vote for the synchronized barangay and Sangguniang Kabataan elections.

 

In Proclamation 48 issued October 6, 2010, President Benigno Simeon Aquino III said it is imperative that the people be given the fullest opportunity to participate in the said elections and exercise their right to vote.

 

With the proclamation too, Filipino voters registered in the country's 42,000 barangays can also find the necessary travel time to go back to their precincts with the long weekend, which allows them ample time.

The next Monday also, November 1, is another holiday, bringing in two holidays in the immediate weeks.

By tradition, November 1 is observed as the All Saints' Day.

This day, thousands of Filipinos visit cemeteries to honor their dead relatives.

In 2007, former president Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed into law the bill on holiday economics, which aimed to give the public more long weekends to enjoy.

The law also pegs four holidays on a fixed date: Jan. 1 or...click local News
