Rosario Murillo, the Nicaraguan government's lead spokeswoman, has issued a communiqué announcing that her husband, President Daniel Ortega, would soon issue a decree declaring a non-working public holiday in Nicaragua on account of the annual July 19 public holiday.
In the past, a one-off, July 20, non-working public holiday has often been adjoined to the annual, July 19, public holiday (2012-07-14, 2010-07-09 and 2009-07-15), and many observers expect that this is the decree which is being referred to.
If so, as is often the case, such a one-off public sector holiday would be deducted from the number of annual vacation days for the public sector ("se declara día de asueto a cuenta de vacaciones para todas las personas trabajadoras del Estado y las empresas publicas"), with the private sector left to decide the observance or not of this public holiday on a case-by-case basis ("se estara a lo que acuerden las partes").
