MANILA, Philippines -- Malacañang has declared August 3 a special holiday for high school and college students all over the country to allow them to register as new voters for the barangay (village) and Sanggunian Kabataan [youth council] elections this October.

Proclamation 1345 released by Executive Secretary Eduardo Ermita Wednesday said the registration on August 4 and 5 would cover high school and college student who would be between 15 and 17 years old by October 29.

The proclamation said that despite the August 4 and 5 registration dates, August 3 was declared a holiday because "majority of the Filipino youth who would register for the barangay and SK elections would need ample time to travel to their home province, city, or municipality where they reside."
