Philippines' Communications Secretary, Herminio Coloma Jr., quoting Executive Secretary, Paquito Ochoa, Jr., has announced that, in the end, current Philippines President, Benigno Aquino III, had decided not to declare Thursday, June 30, 2016, the date of the upcoming inauguration of president-elect, Rodrigo Duterte, as a one-off non-working public holiday in the Philippines.

The aforementioned announcement by Philippines' Communications Secretary, Herminio Coloma Jr., follows last week's (25-Jun-2016) by the very same Philippines Government Communications Secretary, Herminio Coloma Jr., that current Philippines President, Benigno Aquino III, might declare Thursday, June 30, 2016, the date of the upcoming inauguration of president-elect, Rodrigo Duterte, as a one-off non-working public holiday in the Philippines, as was the case on the occasion of the inaugurations of Benigno Aquino III and Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.

Recall that, six years ago (17-Jun-2010), on the recommendation of Philippines' Executive Secretary, Leandro Mendoza (16-Jun-2010), then President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo had declared Wednesday, June 30, 2010, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of that day's inauguration of then President-elect Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III's (Proclamation No. 2085, "Declaring Wednesday, June 30, 2010 as Special Non-Working Holiday Throughout the Philippines").

Twelve years before that (25-Jun-1998), on the occasion of the first inauguration of president Gloria Macapagal Arroyo, the government of the Philippines had similarly declared Tuesday, June 30, 1998, as a special non-working public holiday.
