The government of the Seychelles has announced the official list of annual non-working public holidays in the Seychelles for the calendar year 2017.
Contrary to what happened 5 years ago (11-Jan-2012), but similarly to what was announced in other years (22-Jan-2016, 16-Jan-2015, 10-Jan-2014, 10-Jan-2013, 19-Jan-2011 and 26-Jan-2010), the aforementioned announcement incorrectly omits Easter Saturday as a public holiday in the Seychelles, despite the express stipulations of the current Seychelles public holidays legislation (the Public Holidays Act 1976, an Act to make provision for public holidays; and to provide for matters incidental thereto or connected therewith).
The announced list of 2017 public holidays in the Seychelles lists is in line with the recently-announced changes to the annual list of non-working public holidays in the Seychelles, as announced by Seychelles President Danny Faure during his New Year 2017 televised message to the Nation (01-Jan-2017), as well as with the 2014 "Public Holidays (Amendment) Act, 2014" which itself also amended the legislation governing the official list of annual non-working public holidays in the Seychelles (05-Aug-2014), and with the recently released list of 2017 bank holidays in the Seychelles as released by the Central Bank of the Seychelles (11-Jan-2017).
