The Azerbaijani Cabinet of Ministers has issued a decision, extending the upcoming Novruz non-working public holidays in Azerbaijan to 7 consecutive days.
As was done on the past 2 occasions (23-Feb-2011 and 16-Feb-2010), the annual, March 20-24, Novruz public holidays will be extended by one day, Monday, March 26, 2012. This means a consecutive period of 9 days of public holidays from Tuesday, March 20, until Monday, March 26, 2012.
This day in lieu public holiday was not included in last year's (09-Dec-2011) decision, signed by Prime Minister Artur Rasizade, specifying the official list of 2012 public holidays in Azerbaijan, although it is in line with the provisions of Article 105 of the Labor Code of Azerbaijan (30-Dec-2005).
Finally, Cabinet spokesperson, Akif Ali, announced that, once again, no bridge public holiday would be declared for International Women's Day, as has sometimes been done in the past.
