MANILA, Philippines – Former president and Edsa icon Fidel Valdez Ramos will lead the start of the Edsa People Power 1 celebration on Monday at the Heroes’ Cemetery (Libingan ng mga Bayani) in Fort Bonifacio, Malacañang said.

The former head of the Philippine Constabulary will be at the helm of the flag raising and wreath laying event to pay respects to the martyrs and heroes of martial law.

He will be accompanied by Edsa People Power Commission Vice Chairman and former secretary Jose Titoy Pardo, said Communications Secretary Herminio Coloma on Sunday.

Ramos, remembered for his trademark jump during the culmination of the Edsa People Power, was among the key people who defected from the administration of strongman Ferdinand Marcos. He joined former defense minister and now senator Juan Ponce Enrile in supporting Corazon Aquino.
