The government of Paraguay has released initial elements of the list of annual official non-working public holidays in Paraguay for the upcoming calendar year 2015.

In 2015, the September 29, Batalla de Boquerón, annual non-working public holiday would be the only public holiday of Paraguay in 2015 to be moved, although the actual date it will be moved to is not yet finalized (we expect it to be Monday, September 28, 2015).

The aforementioned announcement 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).
