Slovakia's premier, Robert Fico, has followed-up on last month's announcement that the Slovak Cabinet was considering reducing the number of annual public holidays and non-working days in Slovakia, by naming the 2 annual public holidays it was planning to cut.
As per the aforementioned statement by Slovak premier, Robert Fico, the Slovak Cabinet is considering the cancellation of the September 1st, Constitution Day, non-working public holiday as well as the moving of the September 15, Virgin Mary of the Seven Sorrows, non-working public holiday to the nearest Sunday.
