On June 30, 2010, at the Quirino Grandstand in Rizal Park, Manila, Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III was sworn into office as the fifteenth President of the Philippines, succeeding Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, by Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the Philippines Conchita Carpio-Morales

Benigno Simeon Cojuangco Aquino III (born February 8, 1960 in Manila) is also known as Noynoy Aquino. Aquino graduated from Ateneo de Manila University in 1981 and joined his family in their exile in the United States shortly thereafter. He returned to the Philippines in 1983 shortly after the assassination of his father. In 1998, he was elected to the House of Representatives as Representative of the 2nd district of Tarlac province. He was subsequently re-elected to the House in 2001 and 2004. In 2007, he was elected to the Senate in the 14th Congress of the Philippines.

On September 9, 2009, Aquino officially announced he would be a candidate in the 2010 presidential election, held on May 10, 2010.

On June 9, 2010, the Congress of the Philippines proclaimed Aquino the winner of the 2010 presidential election.

My first FDC from the Philippines. Very nice. I like to see the big national flag and emblem on the FDC. Most important of all, the stamps are beautiful and the cancellations are neat and clear. Thank You very much to my friend.
