Bolivia's governing party, MAS (Movimiento Al Socialismo), has proposed the removal of the Corpus Christi public holiday, in exchange for the creation of a new public holiday that would commemorate the June 21, Año Nuevo Aymara (also known as Inti Raymi, or Año Nuevo Indígena).

Recall that, a few days ago (2007-06-04), a bill to create a new annual public holiday, on June 21, to mark the Indigenous People's New Year, was introduced in the Bolivian legislative assembly.
