Malacañang Executive Secretary, Salvador Medialdea, has announced that President Rodrigo Duterte had declared another one-off non-working public sector holiday and school holiday in the Philippines on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, on account of the second day of the current nationwide transportation strike.

In the Memorandum circular No.29, signed on behalf of President Rodrigo Duterte, Executive Secretary Medialdea added, as was done yesterday (15-Oct-2017), when a one-off non-working public sector holiday was declared in the Philippines for Monday, October 16, 2017, that the private sector would not be covered by the aforementioned decision to declare a one-off non-working public sector holiday in the Philippines on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, as suspension of work is subject to the discretion of employers.

Last month (19-Sep-2017 and 16-Sep-2017), President Rodrigo Duterte similarly declared a one-off non-working public sector holiday and school holiday in the Philippines on September 21 the date when mass demonstrations are expected to mark the 45th anniversary of the declaration of martial law through but Proclamation 1081, dated September 21, 1972.

The aforementioned declaration of a one-off non-working public sector holiday and school holiday in the Philippines, on Tuesday, October 17, 2017, thus further amends the list of official public holidays in the Philippines, released last summer (18-Aug-2016), when Rodrigo Duterte signed Proclamation No. 50, s. 2016.
