This morning's newspapers report that Turkey's Prime Minister, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, has ordered the Minister of Employment and Social Security, Faruk Ηelik, to announce May 1st as a public holiday.

May 1st was an official public holiday, called Spring Day, in Turkey from 1935 until the September 1980 military coup. Last year it almost made it back on the list of official public holidays, but that reinstatement fell through at the last minute (01-May-2008), only to come back to the fore earlier this year (08-Mar-2009).
