Argentina's Congress Approves February 27 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Thursday, December 1, 2011)

Source: Parlamentario (Buenos Aires)

Argentina's lower house of Congress has, in turn, approved a bill which would declare February 27, 2012, as a one-off nationwide public holiday to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Creation and First Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of Argentina (Día del Bicentenario de la Creación y Jura de la Bandera).

Last summer (27-Jul-2011), the Senate of Argentina had approved the aforementioned bill to declare February 27, 2012, as a one-off nationwide public holiday to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the Creation and First Pledge of Allegiance to the flag of Argentina.

All that remains for February 27, 2012, to be an official non-working public holiday in Argentina is for Argentina's President, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, to sign the bill into law. Based on her track record (11-Dec-2010, 03-Nov-2010, 04-May-2010) it seems very likely that President Kirchner will sign the bill into law thus making February 27, 2012, the 18th official 2012 non-working public holiday in Argentina (15-Oct-2011).
