The Office of Communication of the Presidency of Haiti has announced that Haiti's President, Michel Martelly, had issued an Executive Order declaring Monday and Tuesday, July 30-31, 2012, as additional one-off non-working public holidays to coincide with the upcoming Carnaval des Fleurs.
As per the aforementioned Executive Order, the public holiday of Monday, July 30, 2012, will begin at 12:00 noon, while the public holiday of Tuesday, July 31, 2012, will be a full-day non-working public holiday for all sectors of the Haitian economy ("jours fériés et chômés pour les services publics, les écoles, le commerce et l'industrie").
