A spokesman for the Saudi Ministry of Labor, Hattab Bin Saleh Al Anzi, has announced that Saturday, September 22, 2012, had been declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Saudi Arabia to link the Thursday-Friday weekend with the annual National Day public holiday on Sunday, September 23, 2012.
The aforementioned announcement goes on to specify that the Saturday, September 22, 2012, one-off non-working public holiday is limited to Saudi Arabia's students and public sector employees.
In past years, the September 23, National Day, public holiday has often been the source of last minute announcements and tinkering (2011-09-14, 2007-09-18 and 2006-09-19).
