The 113th Independence Day in the Philippines on June 12 falls on a Sunday. So many are wondering if June 13, Monday, will also be the new June 12 and will be declared legal holiday.
Deputy Presidential Spokeswoman Abigail Valte reiterated that Malacañang will not be moving the Independence Day holiday from June 12 to June 13.
June 12 is an annual celebration Philippine Independence and is one of the listed regular holidays for 2011 under Proclamation No. 84 signed by President Benigno Aquino III.
Proclamation No. 84 eliminates the holiday economics policy, that moves holidays within the week to the nearest Monday, used by the administration of former President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
