Kazakhstan Mulls August 31 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Wednesday, August 9, 2017)

The government of Kazakhstan is reported to be considering the declaration of Thursday, August 31, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Kazakhstan, to link the upcoming annual Constitution Day non-working public holiday of Kazakhstan, on Wednesday, August 30, 2017, with this year's Kurban-ait (Feast of Sacrifice) on Friday, September 1, 2017, and adjoining weekend.

Recall that, 6 years ago (25-Aug-2011), when Kazakhstan's Prime Minister, Karim Massimov, had announced that Monday, August 29, 2011, had been declared as an official non-working public holiday by the Government of Kazakhstan, with Saturday, August 27, 2011, being declared a working day, to compensate the August 29 one-off additional public holiday in Kazakhstan (28-Mar-2016 and 16-Feb-2016).

However, last year (25-Aug-2016), the government of Kazakhstan, via its Ministry of Health and Social Development, ruled-out an additional non-working public holiday in Kazakhstan on Monday, August 29, 2016, to link the upcoming annual Constitution Day non-working public holiday of Kazakhstan, on Tuesday, August 30, 2016, with the preceding weekend, is in line with the official list of non-working public holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan for the calendar year 2016, which had been released by the government of Kazakhstan, earlier that same year (13-Jan-2016).

For the moment, the official list of non-working public holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan for the calendar year 2017, remains as it was released by the government of Kazakhstan (18-Jan-2017, 17-Oct-2016 and 31-May-2016).
