Aug. 21, 'Ninoy Aquino Day,' is a holiday - Palace

Aug. 21, ‘Ninoy Aquino Day,’ is a holiday — Palace


Malacañang yesterday announced that Aug. 21, Monday, is a special non-working holiday to enable the nation to observe the 23rd death anniversary of Sen. Benigno "Ninoy" Aquino Jr.

The announcement was made in accordance with Republic Act (RA) 9256 declaring Aug. 21 of every year as "Ninoy Aquino Day," a special non-working holiday.

President Arroyo signed the law giving Aquino, the late husband of former President Corazon C. Aquino, his own holiday on Feb. 25, 2004.

The law requires the EDSA People Power Commission (EPPC) to hold activities to pay tribute to Sen. Aquino. The EPPC’s operations would be funded by the Office of the President and by private donors.
RA 9256 is a consolidation of House Bill (HB) 5525 and Senate Bill (SB) 2586 and was sponsored by former Senate President Franklin M. Drilon and House Speaker Jose C. de Venecia Jr.

Aquino, a key political enemy of the late President Ferdinand Marcos, was assassinated on Aug. 21, 1983 at the Manila International Airport tarmac upon his return from selfexile in the United States.
His death triggered the historic "People Power" revolution three years later, resulting in the fall of the Marcos regime and the restoration of democracy in the country. Sen. Aquino’s widow, Corazon, was President from 1986 to 1992.

Mrs. Aquino had a falling out with President Arroyo when she demanded her resignation on charges of election fraud last year.
