Ecuador's Presidency has released the Decreto Ejecutivo 1418 which amends last year's Decreto 1162 which specified the dates of Ecuador's non-working public holidays for the calendar years 2013, 2014, and 2015.

Last spring (2012-05-04), Ecuador's Presidency had released the Decreto 1162 which specified the dates of Ecuador's non-working public holidays for the remainder of 2012 as well as the calendar years 2013, 2014, and 2015.

As was the case in the previous such announcement, 5 years ago (2007-06-20), last year's Decreto 1162 specified that Carnival Monday and Tuesday would be non-working public holidays, to be recuperated by 2 working Saturdays, and specified that these will be the 2 immediately following Saturdays, rather than the declaration of the compensating working Saturdays, once a year (2012-02-11 and 2010-02-18).

The aforementioned Decreto Ejecutivo 1418 changes the dates of recuperation of the 2013 Carnival public holidays in Ecuador, converting one recuperated Saturday into 8 days worked one hour longer, and a compensatory working Saturday on February 23, 2013.
