PRESIDENT Ferdinand R. Marcos, Jr. declared June 17, which falls on a Monday, a regular holiday for the observance of Eid’l Adha or the Muslims’ Feast of Sacrifice, according to a proclamation he signed on June 4.

More than six million of Filipinos were Muslim, according to a 2022 census by the state statistics agency.

In the Philippines, a regular holiday is a paid day off enforced on a national level where employees get 100% of their salary. Workers on duty during regular holidays are entitled to double pay. — Kyle Aristophere T. Atienza
