October 28, 2013 is a special non-working holiday in the Philippines

October 28, 2013, which falls on a Monday, has been declared a special non-working holiday by President Aquino by virtue of Proclamation No. 656, series of 2013. Barangay elections will be held on that day. Filipinos will exercise their right of suffrage  and this is the time to elect officials in the barangay level.

It's a long weekend!

Here's the full text I got from the website of the Official Gazette of the Republic of the Philippines:
