The government of Cape Verde has declared one off public sector holidays (tolerância de ponto) on Thursday, December 24, and Thursday, December 31, 2009.
This announcement (later confirmed in the Resolução n° 40/2009 de 21 de Dezembro) covers the public sector (funcionários da Administração Central, dos Serviços Desconcentrados do Estado e aos trabalhadores dos Institutos Públicos) and covers both entire days (no dia).
Similar, year-end public holidays are routinely declared in Cape Verde (2008-12-19, 2006-12-15, 2005-12-12, 2004-12-13).
In a separate resolution (Resolução n° 42/2009) the government of Cape Verde also declared a one-off public sector holiday for public sector employees in the Island of São Vicente.
