SPECIAL NON-WORKING HOLIDAY IN CAR ON SEPTEMBER 13

Sep 12, 2022

BAGUIO CITY  (September 12, 2022)—- Malacañang declared September 13 a special non-working holiday in the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) in commemoration of the 36th year of the historic “Mt. Data sipat” (peace pact) between the government and the Cordillera Bodong Administration (CBAd)/Cordillera Peoples Liberation Army (CPLA).

On Sept. 13, 1986, President Corazon Aquino met with representatives of the CBAd-CPLA to signify “cessation of hostilities” and to start acknowledging the aspirations for Cordillera autonomy, said Proclamation 49, signed by Executive Secretary Victor Rodriguez on behalf of President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. “It is but fitting and proper that the people of the Cordillera Administrative Region be given full opportunity to celebrate and participate in the occasion with appropriate ceremonies,” it added.

A cultural tradition in the Cordillera people of settling disputes was applied in 1986 which led to the creation of the Cordillera Administrative Region composed of the provinces of Abra, Apayao, Baguio City, Benguet, Ifugao, Kalinga, and Mountain Province.
