Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Saturday, January 1st, 2011, as a public holiday to mark the Western new year.
Similarly to what was done last year (2009-12-29), the aforementioned circular goes on to say that, as Saturday is normally a day off (2006-08-02), it will be compensated for by Sunday, January 2, 2011, having been declared an additional, day in lieu, public sector holiday.
