Spain's Basque Parliament has begun debating in commission the recent bill aiming to cancel the October 25 annual non-working public holiday added to the list of Spain's Basque public holidays a few years ago.
Three years ago (23-Apr-2010), the parliament of Spain's Autonomous Region of País Vasco had approved the declaration of October 25 as the "Día del País Vasco" (Euskadiko Eguna) to commemorate the anniversary date of the Statute of Gernika in 1979, and to be observed as a regional non-working public holiday beginning in 2011.
Last spring (08-Jun-2013 and 26-May-2013) a bill was introduced in the Basque parliament aiming to replace the October 25 public holiday. However, the following month (09-Jul-2013), the executive of Spain's autonomous region of the País Vasco released its calendar of official regional public holidays ("Decreto 381/2013, de 9 de julio, de la Comunidad Autónoma del País Vasco/Euskadi, por el que se aprueba el Calendario Oficial de Fiestas Laborales de la Comunidad Autónoma de Euskadi para el año 2014.") for the upcoming calendar year 2014, with the October 25, Día del País Vasco, public holiday maintained.
Although the aforementioned bill does not purport to propose a date to replace October 25 (the anniversary of the Statute of Gernika), the date of December 3 (San Francisco Javier) has been widely circulated.
