Romanian Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, has announced a resolution declaring Friday, December 27, 2013, and Friday, January 3, 2014, as additional one-off non-working public sector holidays in Romania.
As is common in such cases (2013-08-14, 2012-11-28 and 2012-04-26) when bridge public holidays are declared in Romania, the aforementioned one-off non-working public sector holidays on Friday, December 27, 2013, and Friday, January 3, 2014, will be compensated by the declaration of the same number of working Saturdays, although these dates have not yet been announced ("zilele vor fi recuperate in luna ianuarie").
Last summer (2013-08-14), Romanian Prime Minister, Victor Ponta, had declared Friday, August 16, 2013, a one-off non-working public sector holiday throughout Romania to link the recently-added (2011-08-10), August 15, public holiday with the subsequent weekend.
Last year (2012-11-28), the Romanian Government similarly declared Monday, December 24, and Monday December 31, 2012, as additional one-off non-working public holidays in Romania, while, five years ago (2007-12-13), Romania's then Prime Minister had similarly declared Monday, December 24, 2007,as a one-off, bridge public holiday, albeit only for the public sector.
