This day in lieu public holiday was not included in last year's (2011-12-09) 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 (2005-12-30).
