Malacañang defended on Monday the decision of President Rodrigo Duterte declaring November 2, December 24, and December 31 as “special working days.”

Duterte signed Proclamation No. 1107 last Friday, declaring the three previously special holidays as special working days, to boost economic productivity in the country amid the coronavirus disease pandemic.

“Ang rationale naman po diyan dahil nga po sa Covid-19, talagang ang dami na nating mga pagkakataon na hindi makapasok ang ating mga manggagawa,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said in a televised briefing.

“Siguro ngayong nandito na ang bakuna eh kinakailangan tayo, kahit papano, maka recover ng lost time,” added Roque.

The pandemic has plunged the Philippine economy into a recession as it forced businesses to close, leading many Filipinos to stop working.
