Argentina January 31 Public Holiday Official
 
(Posted on Thursday, December 20, 2012)

Argentina's Senate has approved by 52-6 the recent bill that declares a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on January 31, 2013, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Contituting Assembly (conmemoración del bicentenario de la Asamblea General Constituyente de 1813).

The aforementioned had been expected since last week (14-Dec-2012), when Argentina's lower house of Congress (Cámara de Diputados) had been convoked for an extraordinary session, during which it is to vote on pending legislation that would declare one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina on January 31, 2013.

Last month (04-Nov-2012), a bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Thursday, January 31, 2012, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the initial meeting of the Argentine Contituting Assembly (conmemoración del bicentenario de la Asamblea General Constituyente de 1813), was added to a pending bill (01-Apr-2012) to declare February 20, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina to commemorate the "Día de la Batalla de Salta".

At that time, we remarked that, considering that the year 2012 already saw the declaration of 2 additional one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina (11-Sep-2012 and 23-Dec-2011), it seemed unlikely that the aforementioned bill to declare one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina on January 31 and February 20, 2013, will pass.

However, late last month (30-Nov-2012), we were proved wrong (partially, for now) as Argentina's Senate approved into law the bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on Wednesday, February 20, 2013. So all bets are off concerning the proposed one-off public holiday on January 31, 2013.
