June 30, Thursday, a regular working day – Palace
Malacañang says June 30, 2016 is a regular working day, the same day when President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and Vice President-elect Leni Robredo will take their oath of office

MANILA, Philippines – The inauguration of President-elect Rodrigo Duterte and incoming Vice President Leni Robredo will be a regular working day.

Malacañang announced this on Wednesday, June 29, a day before the inauguration.

“As per the text message I received from Executive Ochoa at 12:10 p.m. today: ‘June 30, 2016 is a regular working day,'” Coloma said in a message to reporters.

Duterte is set to take his oath as the16th president of the Republic of the Philippines at the Rizal Hall of Malacañang Palace.

Robredo, for her part, will be sworn in at the Quezon City Reception House, the new home of the Office of the Vice President (OVP).

A well-placed source from the Presidential Management Staff (PMS) said the request to make June 30 a holiday must come from the incoming administration, adding Duterte’s camp had no such request.

This was confirmed by Bong Go, incoming PMS chief of the Duterte administration, in a text message to Rappler: “No. Ordinary working day.”

In 2010, then President Gloria Arroyo declared June 30 a special non-working holiday for the inauguration of President Benigno Aquino III and Vice President Jejomar Binay. – Rappler.com
