All are set for the much-awaited inauguration of President-elect Ferdinand 'Bongbong' Marcos Jr. on Thursday, June 30 at the National Museum, with his camp saying it will be "solemn and simple."

In a press release, Franz Imperial, one of the heads of the preparation committee for the event, said on Tuesday that except for some minor details that are still being finalized, the program is all set.

"The program we have prepared is very solemn and simple. It would be very traditional dahil sabi nga ni BBM sa vlog niya, ‘hindi kami lilihis pa sa tradisyon,’" he said, referring to Marcos’ preferred acronym.

TV host and actress Toni Gonzaga will be singing the national anthem, according to Imperial.


A 30-minute military-civil parade will commence before the inauguration song, "Pilipinas Kong Mahal," which will be performed by singer Cris Villonco and the Young Voices of the Philippines Choir.

Marcos will be taking his oath before Supreme Court Chief Justice Alexander Gesmundo.

Imperial also said that while they have yet to receive details of Marcos' inaugural speech, the President-elect would not need a teleprompter.

Marcos is set to hold his inauguration as the 17th President of the Philippines at the National Museum on June 30, 2022.


The son and namesake of the late dictator Ferdinand Marcos Sr. previously said he hopes to be inaugurated at the Quirino Grandstand, where most previous presidents took their oath of office. However, the venue is still being used as one of the government's facilities for COVID-19 patients.

Aside from Marcos, other Philippine Presidents who took their oath at the National Museum include Manuel L. Quezon in 1935, Jose P. Laurel in 1943, and Manuel Roxas in 1946.

Meanwhile, Vice President-elect Sara Duterte is set to hold her inauguration in her hometown Davao City on June 19.
