Malta's Government has published its annual official list of Malta national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2016.
As was the case for the past 2 years (07-Jan-2015 and 10-Jan-2014), the aforementioned announcement, of the official list of national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2016, was made much later than the 2013 public holidays list for Malta (11-Feb-2012), although not as early as it was made for the past in years before (05-Jan-2011 and 07-Jan-2010).
Note that some additional bank holidays restricted to banks and financial institutions are usually declared much later, often on a case-by-case basis (23-Dec-2009, 10-Apr-2009, and 19-Dec-2008), though not always (06-Feb-2015, 04-Mar-2014 and 20-Apr-2011), and less commonly in past years.
None of the aforementioned list of national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2016 is moved to a Monday, despite the 2013 general elections victory of Malta's Labour Party (10-Mar-2013), and their promise (01-Feb-2013 and 28-Aug-2012) to restore the system of Monday holidays when a public holiday fell on a Sunday (15-Jan-2005).
