According to GMANews.tv, there will only be three holidays that will give the public long weekends, less than half of the 11 long weekends in 2010.

Eduardo de Mesa, chief presidential legal counsel, told GMANews.tv that President Noynoy Aquino has the discretion to move the non-religious holidays to the Monday nearest them. De Mesa cited RA 9492 that says non-religious holidays can be moved "unless otherwise modified by law, and/or proclamation."

    Holiday nalang nga ang pa konswelo di bobo para sa napakabigat na trabaho at walang kwentang sweldo na napupunta pa sa tax ayaw pang bigay ni Pnoy. Mas pabor kasi sya sa mga business man para yumaman at walang paki alam sa uring magagawa -- KOREK! PALIBHASA WALANG PAMILYA SI pNOY KAYA WALANG PAKIELAM SA MGA LONG WEEKENDS.. ETO NA NGA LANG ANG TIME PARA SA FAMILY BONDINGS.. TSK TSK.. rnrnPATI YANG TAX NA YAN, KAMING MGA EMPLEYADO ANG MASUGID NA NAGBABAYAD NG TAX, TAPOS LONG WEEKEND LANG, DI PA MABIGAY SA MIN..

    PNoy's reason of providing more opportunity for those daily earners is absurd. Did he do a cost-benefit analysis on this one? statistically, ilan ba ang daily wage earners? OR he just simply favors business people and uses the poor as their excuse? rnrntsk tsk PNoy, kawawa naman ang mga tangang masang Pilipino dahil sa paniniwala nila sayo...
