Manila Mayor Isko Moreno Domagoso has declared June 30 a special non-working holiday in the city for the inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.

Marcos will take his oath of office at the National Museum in Manila.

In his Executive Order 53, Domagooso said major thoroughfares near and around the National Museum would be closed to traffic on June 30 for safety and security reasons, which would affect motorists and the riding public.

He also said the holiday declaration would allow people to watch the inauguration.

“It is but fitting and proper that all citizens of the country, in general, and residents of the City of Manila, in particular, be given full opportunity to witness and to welcome this significant event in the life of the nation,” he said.

He also directed the Manila Police District and other law enforcement officers to “strictly adopt and implement security measures” on June 30.
