Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has announced that Monday, November 3, 2014, would be observed as a one-off non-working public holiday in Bolivia due to the fact that the upcoming public holiday for the, November 2, All Souls' Day annual non-working public holiday falling on a Sunday in 2014.
Recall that, last month (2014-09-13), Bolivia's Ministry of Labour confirmed that the upcoming public holidays of September 14 and November 2, 2014, which fall on a Sunday, would be observed on the following Monday, as per the "Decreto Supremo 22352, del 27 de octubre de 1989", and more generally, that as per the aforementioned decree, public holidays of Bolivia which fall on a Sunday give rise to a day in lieu non-working public holiday "en caso de que un feriado caiga en un día no laborable debe trasladarse al día hábil más inmediato".
Last year (2013-10-30 and 2013-10-23) and the one before (2012-10-29), Bolivia's Minister of Labour, Juan López, had issued a statement ruling-out the declaration of Monday, November 4, 2013, as an additional non-working public holiday in Bolivia, to compensate the fact that the annual, November 2 public holiday fell on a Satuday in 2013 ("El feriado se mantiene como tal el día sábado 2 de noviembre, no hay posibilidad de que se pueda recorrer al día lunes").
