The Paraguayan President, Horacio Cartes, has vetoed the recently-passed bill declaring a new July 4 non-working public holiday in Paraguay, marking the battle of Nanawa, permanently, and not just as a one-off public holiday in Paraguay.

The aforementioned bill, adopted by the Paraguayan Senate earlier this month (15-Apr-2016), was initiated in Paraguay's lower house of deputies, including modifications to it making this would-be new July 4 non-working public holiday in Paraguay, marking the battle of Nanawa, permanent, and not just a one-off public holiday in Paraguay, was sent last week to Paraguay's President for signature into law (or not, as we reported, as the head of Paraguay's employers' union, the "Unión Industrial Paraguaya", Eduardo Filipo, has already petitioned President Cartes to veto the bill).

The last annual non-working public holiday to have been declared in Paraguay was the May 14 public holiday as per the Ley 4.531 ("que reestablece el día 14 de mayo de cada año como feriado nacional"), signed into law 5 years ago (30-Nov-2011), by Paraguay's then President, Fernando Lugo.
