The government of Venezuela, through its Minister for communication and Information, Andrés Izarra, has issued an official denial that Monday, April 30, 2012, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Venezuela.
The aforementioned official statement ("OJO: mañana NO es feriado. Todos a trabajar por la Patria!") was made on the official Twitter account of the Ministerio del Poder Popular para la Comunicación e Información.
This clarification was deemed necessary due to the upcoming May 1st annual non-working public holiday falling on a Tuesday, which also happens to be the date when the new amended Venezuelan public holidays legislation will be signed by President Chavez (2012-03-13 and 2012-02-06).
