Paraguay 2015 Public Holidays Finalized

The President of Paraguay, Horacio Cartes, has signed the "Decreto número 2.755" which confirms that in 2015 only one of the annual non-working public holidays of Paraguay, the Battle of Boquerón anniversary, will be moved to adjoin a nearby weekend.

Earlier this month (07-Dec-2014), the government of Paraguay had released initial elements of the list of annual official non-working public holidays in Paraguay for the upcoming calendar year 2015, whereby the September 29, Batalla de Boquerón, annual non-working public holiday would have been the only public holiday of Paraguay in 2015 to be moved, although the actual date it was to be moved to was not yet finalized (we had reported that we expected it to be Monday, September 28, 2015).

The aforementioned decree is in line with the changes to Paraguay public holidays of 2 years ago (03-Aug-2012), when Paraguay's president, Federico Franco, issued the Decreto presidencial N° 9393 finally implemented the Ley 1723 del 29 de junio de 2001 (Que Autoriza Al Poder Ejecutivo A Trasladar Los Feriados Nacionales Al Dia Lunes) which gives the president of Paraguay the authority to move any, or all, mid-week public holidays to a nearby Monday (except New Year, Independence Day, día de La Virgen de Caacupé, and Maundy Thursday and Good Friday).

Despite its passage over a decade ago (29-Jun-2001), and regular calls for the executive to avail itself of its prerogative (23-Sep-2010 and 26-Jul-2008), the provisions of law 1723/01 had rarely been used before 2012 (24-Jul-2012).
