Dominican Republic Mid-Week Public Holidays Update

The spokesman for the Dominican Liberation Party, Gustavo Sanchez, has submitted another bill to amend the legislation which moves mid-week public holidays to the nearest Monday.

The aforementioned bill would repeal the law, named "Ley No. 139-97 mediante la cual los dํas feriados del calendario que coincidan con los dํas martes y mi้rcoles, jueves o viernes serแn trasladados de fecha" and which excludes the following public holidays from its scope: January 1st, January 21, February 27, August 16 (on any inauguration year), September 24, and December 25.

Ever since its passage (19-Jun-1997), the Ley No. 139-97 is regularly attacked (18-Jun-2010, 09-Feb-2010, 22-Nov-2009, 08-Nov-2009, and 24-May-2008) by many who think that moving religious holidays is blaspheme, while the move of historical national holidays is unpatriotic.
