Bolivia's minister of Labour, Daniel Santalla, has announced that, following today's cabinet of ministers meeting, the Government of Bolivia had finally decided to cancel the recently-declared Monday, January 12, 2015, one-off non-working public holiday on the occasion of the 3rd day in Bolivia of the upcoming Dakar automobile rally ("determinó dejar sin efecto el anuncio de feriado nacional para el 12 de enero").

Last week (01-Jan-2015), Bolivia's President, Evo Morales, following that day's cabinet meeting, had decided to go ahead and declare Monday, January 12, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday on the occasion of the 3rd day in Bolivia of the upcoming Dakar automobile rally, as he had hinted he might, the month before (13-Dec-2014).

Faced by resistance from the private sector, President Morales later announced (07-Jan-2015) that he might compensate that recently-declared Monday, January 12, 2015, one-off non-working public holiday, with a working weekend day.

Today's 180 degree was blamed on the current low petroleum prices.
