The government of Nepal has announced that, after a recent meeting of the Cabinet, May 28, had been formally chosen as the date of the annual National Day non-working public holiday in Nepal.

The aforementioned announcement was made by Foreign Ministry spokesperson Arjun Bahadur Thapa.

Five years ago (27-May-2008) the 3 days of May 28-30, 2008, were declared public holidays to mark the first Constituent Assembly. The year after (22-Mar-2009) Nepal's Home Ministry amended the list of public holidays to include the Republic Day public holiday. However the former Republic Day public holiday, being based on Jestha 15 of the Nepalese calendar sometimes fell on May 28 and sometimes fell on May 29, often causing the Kathmandu diplomatic community puzzlement as to when they should send congratulatory messages to the head of state and the government.
