Venezuela Extends April-May 2016 Public Holidays Again

Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro, has issued another decree extending the recently-implemented Fridays-Saturday-Sunday non-working public holidays weekends had been extended to run from Wednesdays to Sundays, for the Venezuelan public sector ("Miércoles, jueves y viernes no se laborará en el sector público a excepción de aquellas tareas que son fundamentales, que son necesarias").

The aforementioned announcement that the recently-implemented Fridays-Saturday-Sunday non-working public holidays weekends had been extended to run from Wednesdays to Sundays, for the Venezuelan public sector, is but the latest in a series of announcements of additional one-off non-working public holidays in Venezuela to combat its energy problems.

Last month (13-Mar-2016), Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro, declared the entire Holy Week, from March 19 until March 27, 2016, as non-working public holidays, initially only for the Venezuelan public sector, but this was extended to the private sector (16-Mar-2016), with the exception of the banking sector (19-Mar-2016).

Then, earlier this month (07-Apr-2016), president Maduro issued a decree declaring all Fridays to come in April and May 2016, as non-working public sector holidays in Venezuela for the Venezuelan public sector.

Finally, the above were followed by a one-off non-working public holiday for Venezuela's public sector on Monday, April 18, 2016, so that in conjunction with the earlier declared April-May Friday public holidays in Venezuela, and Tuesday's annual Independence Declaration public holiday in Venezuela, there would be a period of 5 days, April 15-19, of non-working public sector holidays in Venezuela.

Although the aforementioned decrees state that the period of these Wednesday-Tursday-Friday non-working public holidays in Venezuela is indefinite, government sources said that the last expected such Friday non-working public holiday in Venezuela should be Friday, June 3, 2016.
