Is October 31, 2019 Declared A Non-Working Holiday?
Quite a few people go on the web to inquire whether or not Oct. 31, Thursday, is a non-working holiday. Well, you are on the right page. This article tells you the answer.
As of this writing, the government has not yet confirmed if that day is a non-working holiday.
Judging from what happened last year, however, the President made a decision to suspend office works in the afternoon of the same day to give time to people who are going to travel to provinces for the two-day holiday in November. What this means is that, there is a high chance that the case might be the same this year. Let’s just hope for that so people could have more time to prepare for their travel.
It can be remembered that President Rodrigo Duterte made an announcement, thru Proclamation No. 555, that November 1 and 2, which are deemed All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day, are non-working holidays. The said proclamation, which the president signed back in Aug. 15, includes two dates, Nov. 2 and Dec. 24, as two addition non-working days across the country.
In related news, the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) approved quite a few special permits to public utility buses (PUBs) so to cater passengers who are going to travel to different provinces during the said holidays.
It is anticipated that a lot of people will visit their dearly beloved departed ones in cemeteries this coming holidays.
So, do you think the government will make a decision to suspend Oct. 31 this year? Let us know your thoughts.
