Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro, has declared another 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 will be a period of 5 days, April 15-19, of non-working public sector holidays in Venezuela.
Last month (13-Mar-2016), Venezuela's president, Nicolás Maduro, had declared the entire Holy Week 2016, from March 19 until March 27, 2016 inclusively, as non-working public holidays, initially only for the Venezuelan public sector, as was done a few years ago (25-Mar-2010), but this was extended to the private sector, a couple of days later (16-Mar-2016), though the Venezuelan regulatory body for the banking sector, Sudeban (Superintendencia de Instituciones del Sector Bancario) announced that Monday to Wednesday, March 21-23, 2016, would not be bank holidays in Venezuela (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 ("Se declaran los días viernes como no laborables para el sector público, a partir del 08 de abril de 2016 y mientras persistan los efectos del fenómeno climático El Niño sobre la central hidroeléctrica Simón Bolívar"). Although the aforementioned decree 2294 states that the period of these 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.
