Aurea Calica of The Philippine Star reports that on Saturday, June 29, "Malacañang said changing ’Pilipinas’ to ’Filipinas,’ as adopted by the Komisyon sa Wikang Filipino (KWF), would be an interesting discussion."

 

The report explained: "In a resolution dated April 12, which also went viral, the KWF decided to revive the use of ’Filipinas’ instead of ’Pilipinas’ to promote the official and modern name of the country." Apparently, the letter "F," which had disappeared from the Filipino alphabet for some time, is back. As such, "KWF deemed it fit to make use of ’Filipinas’ in seals, letterheads, notepads and other materials."

 

However, the report noted that according to deputy presidential spokesperson Abigail Valte, "the issue has yet to be discussed with President Aquino."
