The legislative assembly opposition group Caballas of Spain's autonomous region of Ceuta (Ilustre Pleno de !a Asamblea de Ceuta) has called for the addition of another Muslim non-working public holiday to the official calendario laboral) of the Ciudad Autónoma de Ceuta.
Two years ago (20-Sep-2011), the president of the government of Spain's autonomous region of Ceuta had ruled-out the addition of a regional public holiday for the End of Ramadan (el final del Ramadán) in its list of official public holidays for the calendar year 2012.
The proposal by the Caballas bloc aims to make the list of Ceuta public holidays better match its population ("seguir avanzando en la adecuación del calendario laboral de la ciudad autónoma a nuestra realidad social ") by declaring the end of Ramadan (Eid al-Fitr) Muslim religious holiday as a non-working public holiday in Ceuta in 2014 by taking advantage of the fact that Spain's National Day, on October 12, falls on a Sunday.
Four years ago (18-Sep-2009), after some lengthy discussions (15-Sep-2009 and 16-Sep-2009), Ceuta approved the declaration of the Eid al-Adha (Pascua musulmana del sacrificio) as a one-off regional public holiday, and Ceuta then made the change permanent (23-Sep-2010) by canceling the September 2, Día de la Autonomía, public holiday.
