MANILA, Philippines — Social media users had mixed reactions over the recent renaming of Roosevelt Avenue to Fernando Poe Jr. Avenue. 

President Rodrigo Duterte signed last December 10 Republic Act 11608 renaming the 2.9-kilometer avenue, which runs from Quezon Avenue to Edsa. 

The law, which was announced yesterday, will take effect 15 days after its publication in the Official Gazette or in a newspaper of general circulation.
