Paraguay's President, Horacio Cartes, has decreed a non-working public sector holiday for Wednesday, April 16, 2014, to let Paraguayan civil servants once again begin their Holy Week non-working public holidays earlier.

As per the aforementioned Decreto Nº 1.469, signed yesterday, Paraguay's public servants will be off, beginning at 12:00 noon, on Wednesday, April 16, 2014 ("declara Asueto” el día miércoles 16 de abril, a partir de las 12:00, para los funcionarios de la administración pública y entidades descentralizadas").

Holy Wednesday has often been declared a public sector holiday in Paraguay in the past, most commonly for Holy Wednesday (2013-03-16, 2012-04-03, 2011-04-18, 2010-03-30 and 2009-04-06), and for the year-end (2012-12-07, 2011-12-19, 2010-12-23 and 2009-12-23), though often, under former President Fernando Lugo, only for the afternoon, and very often these afternoon public holidays were declared at the last moment.
