Romanian May 10 Public Holiday Approved

The Romanian Chamber of Deputies has voted by 294 to 1, with 6 abstentions, to override the previous no vote of the Senate of the addition of a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania on May 10.

Two years ago (19-Jun-2013) the Romanian Senate Commission tasked with revising the Romanian Constitution had submitted a draft for approval to the Romanian Parliament which ruled-out the addition of a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania on May 10. As per that commission's statement, "Romania's national day is celebrated on December 1, the day that marks Romania's unification, in 1918". However, in Romania, in case of divergence between the lower and upper houses of Parliament, the lower house's vote is the binding one.

The addition of May 10 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania follows the declaration of a series of new annual non-working public holidays in Romania in recent years: the first and second day of Pentecost (18-Mar-2008), the feast of the Dormition of the Most Holy Mother of God, also know as the Assumption (09-Oct-2008), Saint Andrew (27-Jun-2012), and most recently, the Union of Romanian Principalities (03-Dec-2014).

The addition of May 10 as a new annual non-working public holiday in Romania would take effect next year and would not, therefore, impact the list of non-working public holidays in Romania for the calendar year 2015, which was announced early last year (23-Feb-2014).
