The Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has announced that it had declared Monday and Tuesday, February 25 and 26, 2013, as non-working public holidays for the upcoming National Day and Liberation Day annual public holidays and once again an additional bridge public holiday on the previous Sunday.

The aforementioned announcement states that the Kuwaiti Civil Service Commission has declared Sunday, February 24, 2013, as an additional one-off non-working public sector holiday "because it's between two holidays".

Recall that since the revision to the Kuwaiti Labour Law, 3 years ago (2010-02-22), the February 26, Liberation Day, public holiday, is now also a public holiday for the private sector. However, the declaration of day in lieu public holidays, as was done last year (2012-02-16), or bridge public holidays, as is the case this year, is still reserved for the public sector.
