Greece's new Minister of Labour, Panos Skurletis, has announced that, as part of his government's policies, the Greek government had decided to declare all Sundays of the year as official non-working public holidays in Greece.

Apparently, no mention was made of restoring the 6 additional days of public sector holidays in Greece which were granted in 1989 to civil servants who worked on a computer for more than five hours a day, and which were canceled last year by the previous government (2013-09-15).
