#WalangPasok – June 11 2024 declared holiday in Rizal province

Rizal province will be celebrating its 123rd foundation anniversary this June 11, Tuesday. The day has been declared a special non-working holiday in the said province in Southern Luzon through President Ferdinand Marcos, Jr’s Proclamation 554.

Rizal was first established in June 11, 1901 through Act. No. 137 by the Second Philippine Commission, which has the same legislative powers as the Philippine Senate at present.

It was composed initially of 19 towns of Manila Province, and 14 municipalities belonging to the Morong Politico-Military District. Much of these territories, including Las Pinas, Mandaluyong, Marikina, and Makati, are now part of the National Capital Region.

The proposal to create Rizal province from the merger of Manila and Morong came from Dr. Trinidad Pardo de Tavero of the Federalist Party. He saw it as a way of honoring Dr. Jose Rizal, the country’s national hero.
