Mauritius' Vice-Prime Minister and Minister of Finance, Xavier-Luc Duval, has announced that it was likely that the government of Mauritius would soon declare Tuesday, January 3, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius.
In the aforementioned announcement, the Vice-Prime Minister stated that the government was planning to declare Tuesday, January 3, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius to compensate the fact that the upcoming Christmas Day and New Year's Day both fall on a Sunday.
Monday, January 3, 2011, was also declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Mauritius, at the end of last year (2010-06-24), when Prime Minister Ramgoolam realized that the annual public holidays of January 1 and 2 both fell on a weekend in 2011.
