This was announced by Office of the Press Secretary officer-in-charge Cheloy Garafil on Tuesday, confirming that PBBM already signed the proclamation.

“Gusto ko lang i-announce today that the President has already signed the proclamation declaring October 31 as a special non-working holiday,” she said in a press briefing.

“Para na rin mas marami tayong time kasama ang ating pamilya at para ma-promote na rin ang ating local tourism,” she added.

Based on the original list of holidays for 2022 signed by former President Rodrigo Duterte, only November 1, 2022 (Tuesday) was declared special non-working holiday.

With the latest development, this means that Filipinos will have a long weekend ahead to celebrate Undas 2022.
