The Cabinet Director of Angola's Ministry of Public Service and Social Security, Jesus Maiato, has announced that as per the recently-voted law revising Angolan official public holidays, Monday, May 2, 2011, would be a non-working public holiday.

Late last year (2010-12-16), the Angolan lower house of parliament overwhelmingly passed the "Ley de los Feriados Nacionales y Locales" which revises the legislation on public holidays in Angola, and after some last-ditch attempts by the opposition, the reconciled bill was approved without any substantial changes at the end of January (2011-01-20) and signed into law by Angolan President, José Eduardo dos Santos, the following month (2011-02-15).
