France's National Assembly has voted the Bareigts amendment to the omnibus Macron economic growth bill currently being considered, which would allow the replacement of 7 of the 11 Fench annual public holidays by more local (ie. Muslim and Hindu) annual non-working public holidays.

The concerned regions of France would be the DOM-TOM (territoires d'outre-mer), namely: Mayotte, Martinique, Guadeloupe, Saint-Martin, French Guyana, Saint-Barthélémy, Reunion, and New Caledonia. Note that these DOM-TOMs already have an additional annual non-working public holiday to commemorate the abolition of slavery.

The aforementioned amendment must still be approved by the Senate, although, in case of a legislative showdown between's France'National Assembly and its Senate, the National Assembly is constitutionally the automatic winner.
