Nicaragua's Minister of Labour (Ministra del Poder Ciudadano para los Trabajadores), Jeannette Chávez, has announced that Friday, July 20, 2012, would, once again be a one-off public sector holiday on the occasion of this year's Revolution Day Anniversary (33 aniversario del triunfo de la Revolución Sandinista).

In the past, a one-off, July 20, non-working public holiday has often been adjoined to the annual, July 19, public holiday (2010-07-09 and 2009-07-15).

As is often the case, aforementioned Friday, July 20, 2012, one-off public sector holiday is to be deducted from the number of annual vacation days for the public sector ("se declara día de asueto a cuenta de vacaciones para todas las personas trabajadoras del Estado y las empresas publicas"), with the private sector left to decide the observance or not of this public holiday on a case-by-case basis ("se estara a lo que acuerden las partes").
