Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 25) — The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Saturday ordered the livestreaming of President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.’s inauguration along EDSA and in local government units.

Inutusan na po ng ating OIC (Police Lt. Gen. Vicente Danao, Jr.) ‘yung mga field commanders, particularly ‘yung mga regional directors, to coordinate po sa mga respective local government units (LGUs) para magkaroon ng malalaking LED wall dun sa kanilang mga respective areas para mag-livestream nitong gagawing inauguration nga po ni President-elect Bongbong Marcos,” PNP Spokesperson Police Col. Jean Fajardo said in a public briefing.

At yung malalaking LED wall din po diyan sa kahabaan ng EDSA, nakikipag-ugnayan na rin po tayo sa mga managers po diyan to make sure na ito nga po ay maipalalabas,” she added.

[Translation: Our OIC has instructed the field commander, particularly the regional directors, to coordinate with respective local government units so there will be large LED walls in their respective areas to livestream the inauguration of President-elect Bongbong Marcos. For large LED walls along EDSA, we coordinate with managers there to make sure this will be shown.]

The PNP, however, did not identify the LGUs where the livestreaming screens will be set up.

Ito ang paraan din ng PNP, isa sa mga recommendation para ma-decongest po itong area ng National Museum dahil inaasahan nga po natin na dadagsain nga po ito ng mga tao,” she noted.

[Translation: This is the PNP’s way, one of the recommendations to decongest the National Museum because we expect people will flock to the venue.]

Meanwhile, Danao has urged LGUs around Manila City to also declare June 30 as a holiday.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno earlier signed an executive order declaring Marcos’ inauguration as a special non-working holiday in the city. 

"We would like to appeal to the LGUs of the adjacent cities to consider doing the same for the benefit of our kababayan who may experience inconveniences due to road closures, traffic rerouting, and checkpoints," Danao said.

The Metropolitan Manila Development Authority said some roads around the National Museum will be closed starting Sunday, June 26.

Traffic rerouting has also been earlier announced by the National Capital Region Police Office.
