Dominican Republic Could Reconsider Public Holidays Law

On Friday, the Secretary of Education of the Dominican Republic, Bachelor Melanio Paredes, called on Congress to modify the public holidays law 139-97, saying it causes loss of time in the school system.

However, from the text of the official communique, it is hard to understand the rationale for this call, except as an umpteenth call (21-Feb-2008) to abrogate the "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los días feriados del calendario que coincidan con los días martes y miércoles, jueves o viernes serán trasladados de fecha" (19-Jun-1997).
