Fiji's Parliament has passed the "Bill For An Act To Amend The Employment Relations Promulgation 2007" which adds an annual, September 7, Constitution Day, non-working public holiday to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Fiji, beginning in 2016.

Earlier this week (2015-08-24), Fiji's Attorney General, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, had moved the "Employment Relations Amendment Bill 2015, a Bill for an act to amend the Employment Relations Promulgation 2007" for urgent consideration by Parliament, with a view to enshrine another new annual non-working public holiday in Fiji, Constitution Day.

The new annual non-working public holiday in Fiji, will be observed every year, from 2016, on September 7. A year ago (2014-07-09), the date of the newly created National Sports Day Fiji public holiday (2014-05-20), was announced as Friday, June 26, 2015.
