The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it had declared Thursday, May 29, 2014, as another day in lieu non-working public holiday for the upcoming Israa and Meraj (Prophet's Ascension) annual public holiday.
Similarly to what was done in past years (27-Jun-2011, 09-Jul-2009, 09-Jul-2008 and 04-Aug-2007), but not recently (14-Jun-2013 and 11-May-2012), the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission moved the 2014 date of the Israa and Meraj annual public holiday to adjoin a weekend.
The moving of some of Kuwait's public holidays to adjoin the nearest Kuwait weekend, was re-confirmed in 2008 (26-Mar-2008) following an imbroglio related to the expected date for the Western New Year public holiday, earlier that year (26-Dec-2007). The weekend in Kuwait changed from Thursday/Friday to Friday/Saturday, in 2007 (03-Jun-2007).
