The Armenian Government has announced that it had declared Friday, July 6, 2012, the day after the upcoming Constitution Day public holiday, as a one-off non-working public holiday "to enable the population to rest for four days".

As was done in previous instances of a bridge public holiday (2012-04-18, 2012-02-22, 2011-02-24 and 2010-09-10), in compensation for this one-off non-working public holiday, Saturday, July 14, 2012, will be a regular working day in Armenia.

No mention was made by the government as to whether Monday, July 16, 2012, would also be declared a one-off public holiday, as was done in the past 3 years (2011-07-29, 2010-07-09 and 2009-07-16), on account of the Armenian religious festival of Vardavar (Transfiguration of Jesus Christ).
