The Algerian public sector ministry (Direction Générale de la Fonction Publique) has announced that Sunday, December 27, 2009, had been declared a paid non-working public holiday (journée chômée et payée) on account of the upcoming Achoura.

The aforementioned declaration of Sunday, December 27, 2009, as a paid non-working public holiday follows an earlier communiqué by the Algerian Ministry of Religious Affairs and Endowments (Ministère des Affaires religieuses et du Wakf) and is in line with the "loi n° 63-278 du 26 juillet 1963" which regulates non-working public holidays in Algeria.

Note that due to the fact that the Islamic calendar is shorter than the Western calendar by about 11 days, there will have been 2 Achoura public holidays in Algeria, this year (05-Jan-2009).
