President Duterte Inauguration 2016: No Classes? Start Time, Live Stream, TV Channel Schedule

President-elect Rodrigo Duterte will be inaugurated on Thursday, June 30, start time at 10:30 AM ET, at the Malacanang Palace, Manila, Philippines.

Duterte outlasted his opponents in huge margins in the recently-concluded May 11 national elections in the Philippines. Duterte is the first mayor to jump into the presidential race and won the election.

Leaders of congress, judiciary, and the members of diplomatic corps are among those invited to the simple and unique inauguration as the 16th president of the Philippines.
