The government of the Philippines has once again confirmed that, despite many reports to the contrary, the upcoming EDSA Special Holiday was restricted to schools only, and that Wednesday, February 25, 2015, would therefore be a regular working day in the Philippines, and not a non-working public holiday in the Philippines.
Last summer (2014-07-23), the government of the Philippines had gazetted the Proclamation No. 831, s. 2014, signed by President Benigno Aquino III, and which listed the special and regular non-working public holidays in the Philippines for the calendar year 2015.
However, such rumours that the EDSA will be a non-working public holiday in the Philippines come back almost every year (2014-02-24 and 2013-02-24).
