The Romanian Senate has rejected legislation that would have created 2 new non-working public holidays in Romania; on March 21 and May 6.
Last year (2010-09-22), the Romanian Senate similarly rejected legislation that would have created a new, February 20, national public holiday commemorating the emancipation of the country's Roma.
The last long-term changes to the official list of non-working public holidays in Romania occurred in 2008, when 2 new weekday public holidays were added to the official list of Romanian public holidays; Pentecost Monday (2008-03-18) and the feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, also know as the Assumption, on August 15 (2008-10-09).
