The government of Venezuela has introduced a bill (proyecto de la Ley del Proceso Social del Trabajo) which would replace the current legislation related to non-working public holidays in Venezuela.
As per the aforementioned bill, set to take effect as of May 1st, 2013, the list of official annual non-working public holidays in Venezuela would increase by 5 day: Carnival Monday, Carnival Tuesday, Holy Wednesday, December 24, and December 31.
These changes would bring the general public holidays in Venezuela closer to the list of Venezuelan bank holidays, which are set independently (06-Aug-2011, 05-Dec-2010, 10-Dec-2009).
