Mauritius Rejects Public Holidays Legislation Amendments

Mauritius' Parliament has passed the "Public Holidays (Amendment) Bill", but without the recent amendments which would have enshrined into law 2 new annual non-working public holidays in Mauritius.

After many years (26-Jul-2014, 14-Jun-2013, 02-Jun-2012 and 14-Sep-2011), when no new annual non-working public holidays were declared in Mauritius, a couple of months ago (18-Sep-2015), Mauritius' Parliament passed the first reading of the "Public Holidays (Amendment) Bill" which would enshrine into law 2 new annual non-working public holidays in Mauritius, thus affecting the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2016, as announced by the Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius, earlier this year (14-Jun-2015).

Recall that the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritius for the upcoming calendar year 2016, as announced by the Cabinet of the Government of Mauritius, contained a new non-working public holiday for the Tamizh Puttaandu (Varusha Pirappu or Tamil New Year), but that, in exchange, there was to be no public holiday in 2016 in Mauritius for Thaipoosam Cavadee, as it falls on a Sunday in 2016. It remains to be seen if the change will be permanent, or if Tamizh Puttaandu will alternate every year with Thaipoosam Cavadee, as is already the case for the Assumption and All Saints annual non-working public holidays of Mauritius.
