The President of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, has signed the decree enforcing last year's amendments to the Venezuelan legislation governing non-working public holidays, which take effect today, though they were signed by President Hugo Chávez on May 1st, 2012.
The aforementioned LOTTT "Ley Orgánica del Trabajo, los Trabajadores y las Trabajadoras" (13-Mar-2012 and 06-Feb-2012) replaces the current legislation related to non-working public holidays in Venezuela.
As per Article 366 of the aforementioned bill, the list of official annual non-working public holidays in Venezuela will increase by 4 day: Carnival Monday, Carnival Tuesday, December 24, and December 31.
These changes will bring the general public holidays in Venezuela closer to the list of Venezuelan bank holidays, which are set independently (17-Jul-2012, 06-Aug-2011, 05-Dec-2010, 10-Dec-2009).
