Argentina Votes February 3 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Friday, May 25, 2012)

Argentina's lower house of Congress (Cαmara de Diputados) has approved a recent bill to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina on February 3, 2013, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the battle of San Lorenzo.

The bill to declare Sunday, February 3, 2013, as one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina surfaced last April (01-Apr-2012), the week after another bill (26-Mar-2012) was introduced n Argentina's lower house of Congress to limit the number of national non-working public holidays in Argentina to 15 in any given year.

Probably as a result of this contrarian bill, the recently-voted bill drops the public holiday on Monday, September 24, 2012, which was part of the original text of the bill.

The the recently-voted bill now moves to the Senate for ratification and, if ratified, would be presented to the President of Argentina. Considering the fact that this bill was introduced by the "kirchnerista" MP Agustνn Rossi and that it falls on a Sunday, it is quite likely that Sunday, February 3, 2013, will be one-off non-working public holidays in Argentina.
