Philippines Presidential Spokesman, Edwin Lacierda, has announced that contrary to his recent statement, President Benigno Aquino III will in fact be reviewing the possibility of requesting Congress to amend the law allowing the moving of legal holidays.

Last week (08-Jul-2010), Philippines Presidential spokesman, Edwin Lacierda, had issued a statement that the current holiday economics policy would remain in place for the moment, as the new government has "no official position" yet on the issue.

Rumours had been rife about a possible change in the public holidays legislation of the Philippines, ever since, last month (14-Jun-2010), president-elect, Benigno Aquino III, was quoted as being in favor of repealing the provisions of Republic Act 9492 as they pertain to the, June 12, Independence Day public holiday.

In related news, Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa Jr. has announced that Malacaρang had declared July 15, 2010, Thursday, a special non-working public holiday in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR).
