MANILA, Philippines — President-elect Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. will take his oath of office as the 17th chief executive of the country at the historic National Museum of the Philippines on June 30, 2022.


Incoming Presidential Management Staff secretary Zenaida “Naida” Angping said that the area was found to be a “suitable venue” for the oath-taking following the inaugural committee’s ocular inspection.

“The National Museum of Philippines building and its surrounding areas match our requirements for President-elect Marcos’ inauguration.  Preparations are already in full swing to ensure that it will be ready by then,” Angping said in a statement.

Angping said the inaugural committee also considered the Quirino Grandstand for Marcos Jr.’s oath-taking.

The committee’s ocular inspection team, however, observed that there were still several COVID-19 facilities in the area.

“The safety and welfare of our people are paramount.  As such, we chose to avoid disrupting the medical care being given to the COVID-19 patients housed there.  That’s why we opted for the National Museum as the venue,” Angping said.

The National Museum of the Philippines previously served as the venue for the inauguration of former Presidents Manuel L. Quezon, Jose P. Laurel, and Manuel Roxas.
