The government of the Cook Islands has released it list of official non-working public holidays in the Cook Islands, for the calendar year 2013.

As usual (2011-11-03 and 2010-07-25), the aforementioned announcement confirms the terms of the 2003 clarification by Cook Islands' Prime Minister's Office chief of staff, Joe Caffery, on the list of public holidays in the Cook Islands and the dates on which they are to be observed (2003-12-08).

Since last year, however, the aforementioned announcement takes into account last summer's Public Holidays (Ra O Te Ui Ariki) Amendment Bill 2011 (2011-07-15) which declared July 6 as a new annual non-working public holiday in the Cook Islands, beginning in 2012. Note that most online sources, such as Wikipedia, and even the website of the Prime Minister of the Cook Islands, are still not reflecting these legislative changes from 2 years ago.
