Sint Maarten July 1 Public Holiday Officialized
 
(Posted on Wednesday, June 6, 2012)

The Parliament of Sint Maarten has finally, and unanimously, approved legislation to declare July 1st a new annual non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten, to commemorate Emancipation Day.

Sint Maarten's Parliamentary Central Committee had already, last month (11-May-2012), approved a draft ordinance, introduced, earlier this year (19-Mar-2012), to declare July 1st a new annual non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten, to commemorate Emancipation Day.

However Parliament had then rescheduled the debate on making July 1st a new annual national non-working public holiday.

To avoid a repeat of last year (18-Jun-2011 and 03-Jun-2011) when draft law to make Emancipation Day, on July 1, into a new annual public holiday in Sint Maarten narrowly missed taking effect, the government of Sint Maarten used a government ordinance (executive decree) to make July 1, 2012 an official one-off non-working public holiday to mark Emancipation Day (01-Jun-2012).
