Bahrain's Prime Minister, Prince Khalifa bin Salman Al Khalifa, has issued a circular declaring Tuesday and Wednesday, December 16 an 17, 2014, as non-working public holidays in Bahrain to mark the upcoming annual National Day and the 15th Anniversary of the accession to the throne of King Hamad bin Isa Al Khalifa.
Contrary to some previous years (2011-12-13 and 2010-12-12), but in line with last year (2013-12-12), as the aforementioned dates do not coincide with the Fridays and Saturdays weekly days of rest in Bahrain (2006-08-02), there is no need to declare a compensatory non-working public holiday for the Bahraini governmental ministries, directorates and institutions.
