MANILA, April 19 — President Benigno S. Aquino III has declared April 21, which falls on a Saturday, as a special (non-working) day in the city of Malabon in celebration of its 11th cityhood anniversary.

In Proclamation No. 366 signed by Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa Jr. on April 17, the Chief Executive issued the declaration to give the people of Malabon the full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies.

On March 5, 2001, then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo signed into law Republic Act No. 9019 converting the municipality of Malabon into a highly urbanized city. The law was ratified after the plebiscite on April 21, 2001. (PNA) scs/PCOO/rsm
