Members of the opposition Slovak Democratic and Christian Union (SDKÚ) in Slovakia's Parliament, have proposed making the anniversary of the date of the first Czechoslovak Republic, on October 28, into a new annual non-working public holiday in Slovakia, and in compensation cancelling the September 1st annual non-working public holiday in Slovakia, as has been proposed before.
In the same vein, 3 years ago (2011-09-04), the Chairman and Speaker of Slovakia's Parliament, Richard Sulik, has stated that the annual, September 1st, Constitution Day non-working public holiday is superfluous and should be canceled, or at least made into a regular working day, arguing that Slovakia already celebrates its independence with an annual non-working public holiday on January 1st and that the September 1st Constitution Day non-working public holiday is "not the most important holiday".
