Yesterday, the Cook Islands Parliament approved the declaration of a new annual non-working public holiday on July 6, called "Ra O Te Ui Ariki".
The aforementioned Public Holidays (Ra o te Ui Ariki) Amendment Act 2011 thus amends the Public Holidays Act 1999 (15-Dec-1999), and declares July 6 as a new annual non-working public holiday in the Cook Islands, beginning in 2012.
In addition, the regional gospel day public holidays will no longer be public holidays.
