Initial comments from members of El Salvador's newly installed legislature tend to indicate widespread support for the proposed declaration of May 22-23, 2015, as one-off non-working public holidays in El Salvador, on account of the upcoming beatification of Monseñor Oscar Arnulfo Romero.
Last week (10-May-2015), the spokesperson for the President of El Salvador (Secretario de Comunicaciones de la Presidencia), Eugenio Chicas, had announced that the decision as to whether to declare May 22-23, 2015, as one-off non-working public holidays in El Salvador, would be made, once the National Assembly was back in session.
Currently, the contemplated May 22-23 one-off non-working public holidays in El Salvador would apply to both the private and public sector, but, contrary to the previous one-off public holiday in El Salvador (12-Mar-2015), only in the greater San Salvador metro area ("El asueto sería para empleados públicos y privados únicamente de el gran San Salvador"), or more precisely, the Área Metropolitana de San Salvador (AMSS).
Recall that, five years ago (26-Mar-2010), El Salvador's Legislative Assembly had declared March 24 as Monsignor Romero National Day, a commemorative holiday, to mark the anniversary of the 1980 assassination of liberation theologian, Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero.
