The Government of Trinidad and Tobago has announced that Saturday, November 2, 2013, would be the date of the upcoming Divali public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago.
The date for the 2013 Diwali public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago had been left "to be announced" when the 2012-2013-2014 Trinidad and Tobago non-working public holidays were announced, at the beginning of last year (2012-01-04).
Trinidad and Tobago often the South Indian method of calculation for the date of the Divali public holiday, as was the case, for example, in 2005 and 2010(2005-10-07 and 2010-10-10), but not in 2007 (2007-08-10).
In the present case, however, it seems that the driving force behind the choice of Saturday, November 2, 2013, would be the date of the upcoming Divali public holiday in Trinidad and Tobago, was that had it been on the Sunday, then it would have conflicted with the November 4th, St Joseph bye-election.
