Sint Maarten's Minister of Education, Culture, Youth and Sports Affairs, Silveria Jacobs, has confirmed that the upcoming, October 10, Constitution Day is not a non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten.
Last year (30-Sep-2011), the Prime Minister of Sint Maarten, Sarah Wescot-Williams, had announced that there were no plans for Sint Maarten to declare October 10 as a non-working public holiday, despite the fact that Curaçao had recently declared Monday, October 10, 2011, as an official non-working public holiday to commemorate the first anniversary of the date when Curaçao gained autonomous country status (25-Sep-2011).
Later calls (17-Oct-2011) by the leader of the National Alliance (NA) group in Sint Maarten's Parliament, William Marlin for October 10 to also be declared an annual non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten, bore no fruits. Instead, this past summer (06-Jun-2012), the Parliament of Sint Maarten unanimously approved legislation to declare July 1st a new annual non-working public holiday in Sint Maarten, to commemorate Emancipation Day.
