MANILA - Malacañang on Sunday reminded the public that June 13, Friday, is a regular working day even if it is sandwiched between a holiday and a Saturday.

June 12, Thursday, is Independence Day, a national holiday.

"Na-issue na po ‘yung Proclamation No. 55 series of 2014. Ito po ay naglilista ng lahat ng mga petsa ng regular at special na holiday para sa taong 2014. Hindi po kasama doon ‘yung June 13, 2014 kaya ito po ay regular working day para sa ating lahat," said Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma Jr. in an interview over dzRB Radyo ng Bayan.

President Benigno Aquino III will lead the commemoration of 116th Independence Day in Naga City.

Coloma urged the public to participate in the celebration of Independence Day with theme “Pagsunod sa Yapak ng mga Dakilang Pilipino Tungo sa Malawakan at Permanenteng Pagbabago or Following on the Footsteps of Great Filipinos Towards Permanent and Widespread Change.”

"Batid po natin na masigasig ang ating Pangulo na magsagawa ng mga mahahalagang reporma sa pamahalaan. Kaya po tayo nagtataguyod ng prinsipyo ng matuwid na daan ay para itaguyod ‘yung pagbabago na magiging malawak at malalim at ‘yung pagpapalakas ng mga institusyong publiko natin. ‘Yung pagkakaroon ng integridad sa mga institusyon ng pamahalaan at ‘yung mabuting pamamahala at tapat ang paglilingkod ng mga lingkod-bayan sa mga mamamayan. ‘Yan po sana ang maging pokus ng ating darating na selebrasyon," he said explaining the theme of the celebration.
