Fernando Poe Jr declaration as National Artist Accepted by Family. The proclamation was signed by Aquino and Executive Secretary Paquito Ochoa last July 20.

Poe was honored as National Artist in 2006 but his family refused to receive it under the administration of then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo, the actor’s rival during the 2004 elections.

FPJ's daughter, Grace Poe-Llamanzares, earlier announced that they hope they will get and accept the plaque of recognition under the administration of Benigno “Noynoy" Aquino III.

“Hopefully now, with this new administration (Aquino), hopefully it can be given to us (ang plake at medalye)," pahayag ni Grace, hinirang ni Aquino na bagong pinuno ng Movie, Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB).

Meanwhile, here's the Full Transcript of the Speech of President Aquino at the conferment of the Order of National Artists (posthumous) upon Fernando Poe Jr., August 16, 2012. Credit to Official Gazette for the text transcript.
