Maldives Restores 2015 Eid al-Adha Public Holidays

Maldivian President, Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, has once again changed the dates of the upcoming Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual public holidays in the Maldives, and announced via the Twitter account of President's Office Spokesperson, Ibrahim Muaz Ali, that September 20-21-22 would once again be non-working public holidays in the Maldives, and that Sunday, September 27, 2015, would be kept as a government public holiday.

Earlier this month (06-Sep-2015), President Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom had decided to extend the upcoming Eid al-Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) annual public holidays in the Maldives and link it to the previous weekend by declaring additional non-working public holidays in the Maldives on Sunday and Monday, September 20 and 21, 2015 ("Al'ha Eid bandhaa gulhigen, muvazzafunnah luifaseyha ah takai Sept 20 adhi 21, sarukaaru bandhu dhedhuvas kamugai Raees nimmavaifi"), thus extending the previously-announced (06-Jan-2015 and 21-Jan-2015) dates for the 2015 Eid al-Adha annual non-working public holidays in the Maldives.

However, following last Sunday night's surprise announcement of a change in the date of the upcoming Eid al Adha by Saudi Arabia (13-Sep-2015), Maldivian President, Abdulla Yameen Abdul Gayoom, then decided to cancel the previous declaration of September 20-21-22 as non-working public holidays in the Maldives, and instead declared Sunday, September 27, 2015, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in the Maldives (14-Sep-2015).
