Palace Declares February 6 Special Non-Working Holiday in Several Areas
FEBRUARY 6 – The Malacang Palace declared February 6, 2019 as a special non-working holiday in several areas in the Philippines.
Work or class suspensions are often declared for the purpose of a celebration, safety from a typhoon or expected calamity, and other important matters involving the public.
Recently, the Palace released a proclamation declaring a special non-working holiday in several areas in the Philippines. It is in line with the voting for the Bangsamoro Plebiscite.
It was in 2018 when President Rodrigo Roa Duterte signed the Bangsamoro Law. Two dates were scheduled by the Commission on Election (COMELEC) for the plebiscite – one is on January 21, 2019.
Based on a recent social media post on the Facebook page of Manila Bulletin, the Palace declared February 6, 2019, the second date scheduled by COMELEC, as a special non-working holiday in the following areas:
- Lanao del Norte except Iligan City
- Municipality of Aleosan
- Municipality of Kabacan
- Municipality of Midsayap
- Municipality of Pikit
- Municipality of Pigkawayan
