TACLOBAN CITY – City Mayor Alfred Romualdez suspended classes and works in the city government and private offices here on Tuesday afternoon in preparation for Liberation Day on October 20, 2022, per Executive Order No. 2022-10-034.

In an executive order issued on Tuesday, Romualdez canceled classes and work due to the "simultaneous commemorative activities all over the city and in adjacent local government units will cause outpouring of people from different places, organizations, and groups, which may result to overcrowding, traffic congestion and inconveniences to the public."

"To mitigate the inconveniences, it is deemed expedient to temporarily suspend classes at all school levels, both private and public, and work in all government offices in Tacloban City for the general welfare of the City and its inhabitants," stated in the E.O.

On October 20, 1944, American and Filipino forces led by General Douglas MacArthur landed on Leyte during the Battle of Leyte, liberating the island of Leyte and launching the successful Philippine campaign of 1944–1945 during World War II.

Several years later, this resulted in the enactment of Republic Act 1745, or "An Act declaring October 20 of every year a special holiday in the Province of Leyte, amending for this purpose Section 30 of the Revised Administrative Code." —iTacloban
