In a Governmental Decree signed by signed by Guatemalan President, Otto Perez Molina, Interior Minister, Mauricio Lopez Bonilla, and Secretary General of the Presidency, Gustavo Martinez, the day of Friday, October 31, 2014, was declared a one-off non-working public holiday for Guatemala's public sector ("permiso laboral con goce de salario a los servidores de la administración pública").
As per the preamble to the acuerdo gubernativo 376-2014, Friday, October 31, 2014, is being declared a one-off non-working public holiday for Guatemala's public sector, as the annual November 1st non-working public holiday of Guatemala falls on a Saturday in 2014, a day usually not worked in Guatemala's public sector ("por ser sábado es inhábil en el cómputo de los plazos de la administración pública").
Last year (2013-06-26), then Guatemalan Minister of Labour, Carlos Contreras, had similarly announced that Monday, July 1st, 2013, had been declared a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Guatemala on account of the upcoming Army Day public holiday (Día del Ejército), falling on a Sunday that year.
