PGMA declares May 10 a holiday

Manila (7 May) -- President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo has declared May 10 as special public non-working holiday throughout the country to give the people the fullest opportunity to participate in the upcoming national and local elections.

The declaration is embodied in Proclamation No. 2020 issued on March 1.

Recently, Malacaņang has also called on the people to ignore "political noise" and expressed confidence that Monday's election will push through, adding it will come out as an honest, peaceful and fair political exercise.

Several presidential spokespersons said Malacaņang harbors no doubt whatsoever on the capability of the Commission on Election to settle the technical problems that surfaced during the test-runs of the automated vote counting machines.

"Let's give COMELEC a chance. They say they can do it so let's respect them," said Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Gary Olivar during a Malacaņang press briefing.

For his part, Secretary Ricardo Saludo, principal Palace spokesman said that the government has been consistent in its support and advocacy for fair, free, orderly and credible elections. (PIA/A. Lumaque) [top]
