Ecuador's Presidency has released the Decreto 1162 which specifies the dates of Ecuador's non-working public holidays for the remainder of 2012 as well as the calendar years 2013, 2014, and 2015.

The aforementioned decree specifies that most public holidays' day off will continue to be moved to the nearest weekend, as per the 2003 "Ley Orgánica de Servicio Civil y Carrera Administrativa y de Unificación y Homologación de las Remuneraciones del Sector Público" (2003-12-04).

As was the case in the previous such announcement, 5 years ago (2007-06-20), the decree specifies that Carnival Monday and Tuesday will be non-working public holidays, to be recuperated by 2 working Saturdays, but this time it specifies that these will be the 2 immediately following Saturdays, while before the declaration of the compensating working Saturdays was announced once a year (2012-02-11, 2010-02-18, 2009-02-21, 2008-01-27 and 2007-02-17).
