    Para naman silang eng2x..its been a tradition that during an election day it is always declared a holiday..
    What we want to hear is the clamor by some to declare May 14 as holiday too.
    Reasons
    1. To give time to those who went to vote in the provinces and giv them time to travel back.
    2. As mentioned by DOE, to prevent the brownouts that will happen and affect the credibility of the election
