Muntinlupa is commemorating its 28th anniversary as a city with various festivities today, March 1st. On this day in 1995, the Charter of the City of Muntinlupa, also known as Republic Act 7926, was signed by then-President Fidel Ramos, elevating the municipality to a highly urbanized city.

In a plebiscite held concurrently with the elections on May 8th of the same year, residents ratified and approved the cityhood, making Muntinlupa the 65th city in the Philippines and the eighth in the National Capital Region.

March 1st is a special non-working holiday in Muntinlupa, according to Republic Act 9191, also known as the Muntinlupa City Charter Day, passed in 2003. Mayor Ruffy Biazon and Senator Risa Hontiveros will lead the opening of the Bahay Kanlungan Elderly Home Care in Victoria Homes, Barangay Tunasan, a new facility specializing in geriatric care.


Biazon believes that Muntinlupa has turned a new page and is now on a journey towards recovery from the pandemic. The city's economic turnaround has earned it numerous accolades, including being named one of the country's top five competitive cities.

As part of the celebration, Biazon will deliver his first State of the City Address (SOCA) as the newly elected mayor in the May 2022 elections. The SOCA will focus on his administration's accomplishments and plans under the 7K Agenda.

Among the highlights of the cityhood celebration is the recognition of Muntinlupa's top 10 taxpayers, which includes Filinvest Alabang Inc., Ford Group Philippines Inc., Filinvest Land Inc.-Festival Supermall, Ayala Land Inc., Filinvest Reit Corporation, Meralco Business Center, Amkor Technology Philippines, Capital One Philippines Support Services Corp., GenPact Services LLC Philippines Inc., and Insular Life Assurance Company Ltd.

Biazon led the unveiling of the newly refurbished wet section of the Alabang Central Market, one of the city government's flagship projects, on February 28th.
