The Office of the Executive Secretary clarified that the alleged Proclamation No. 197 on the Ramadan holiday was “spurious” and encouraged the public to refrain from spreading such false information.

The real Proclamation 197 was actually the “declaration of April 28, 2017 (Friday) as a special (non-working) day in Metro Manila for the 30th Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summit 2017, hosted by the Philippines,” according to the OES.

“The Proclamation 197 circulating through social media declaring May 26, 2017 (Friday) as special (non-working) day in Metro Manila in observance of the 1st Tarawih of Ramadan (Sighting of Ramadan Moon) is spurious,” Malacañang said. “We therefore ask netizens to refrain from posting such information,” it added.
