The Cook Islands Parliament has approved the "Public Holidays (Ra o te Ui Ariki) Act 2013" which amends the declaration, a couple of years ago, of a new annual non-working public holiday in the Cook Islands on July 6, called "Ra O Te Ui Ariki".
The aforementioned Public Holidays (Ra o te Ui Ariki) Act 2013 ("Ra o te Ui Ariki means the first Friday of July in each calendar year") thus amends the Public Holidays (Ra o te Ui Ariki) Amendment Act 2011 (2011-07-15), which itself amended the Public Holidays Act 1999 (1999-12-15), by declaring July 6 as a new annual non-working public holiday in the Cook Islands, beginning in 2012, while at the same time canceling all the regional gospel day public holidays in the Cook Islands.
