Nicaragua's Ministry of Labour (MITRAB), through its minister, Alba Luz Briones, has announced that Thursday, May 30, 2013, would once again be a non-working public sector holiday in Nicaragua to mark Nicaragua's Mothers' Day.
As per the aforementioned announcement, and as is usually done (2012-05-28, 2012-04-25 and 2011-05-28), the Thursday, May 30, 2013, non-working public sector holiday is declared to favour family activities ("De esta manera el gobierno favorecerá ese día la reunión de las familias para que celebren a sus madres o vayan a dejar sus ofrendas florales en los sitios donde descansen en paz") and will apply to the public sector of the economy of Nicaragua (ie. employees of the state).
The Nicaraguan private sector is left to decide the observance or not of this public holiday on a case-by-case basis ("En el caso de los trabajadores privados prevalecerá lo que acuerden con sus empleadores").
