Nepal's Home Secretary, Dr Govind Prasad Kusum, will head a four-member committee to review and systematize the declaration and duration of public holidays in Nepal.

This follows a recent spate of demands by minorities to have special public holidays and/or to have those already in place extended for a second or third day (see 12-Jan-2009, 28-Oct-2008 and 07-Mar-2008).

A recent meeting of government secretaries also discussed the re-adoption of a 2-day weekend, which was reduced to one day, in March 2005, by the government of former King Gyanendra.
