Mauritania's Commission centrale d'observation du croissant lunaire has announced that the upcoming Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan), and first day of the corresponding annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania, would be observed on Monday, July 28, 2014, in Mauritania.

Contrary to some previous years (2005-10-31, 2001-12-13, 2001-03-04, and 2000-01-05), but not all (2013-10-09, 2011-11-01), the President of Maurtitania, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, did not issue a specific decree extending the Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) public holiday for a second day in Mauritania, although it is implicitly understood that this will be the case.

The aforementioned date of Monday, July 28, 2014, for the first day of theAid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania, corresponds to a change of one day as compared to the dates that were announced, earlier this year (2014-01-02), in the list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritania for the calendar year 2014.
