THE Palace reminded the public that August 22, Friday, is not a holiday.

Communications Secretary Sonny Coloma said August 22 will be a regular working day.

Under Proclamation 655, there are only two non-working holidays in August: Ninoy Aquino Day (August 21, Thursday) and National Heroes' Day (August 25, Monday).


Ninoy Aquino Day is considered a special non-working day, while National Heroes Day is considered a regular holiday.

Coloma said the President wants a simple commemoration of his father's death anniversary.

Ninoy was assassinated at the tarmac of the Manila International Airport on August 21, 1983. His assassination triggered the first EDSA People Power Revolution in February 1986, which catapulted his widow, Corazon Aquino, to the presidency. (ANC)
