A spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Civil Service Ministry has announced that there would be no one-off day in lieu non-working public holiday in Saudi Arabia to compensate for the Kingdom's National Day annual non-working public holiday of September 23, as it falls within the Eid Al-Adha annual public holidays in 2015.
The aforementioned spokesman for Saudi Arabia's Civil Service Ministry did go on to state that "The National Day holiday will not be compensated if it coincides with official holidays such as this year's Eid Al-Adha" although "according to the regulations, if National Day falls on a weekend – Friday or Saturday – it is compensated for with a public holiday on either the preceding Thursday or following Sunday" as was the case in recent years (16-Sep-2013, 16-Sep-2012, 14-Sep-2011, 18-Sep-2007 and 19-Sep-2006).
Recall that Saudi Arabia's legislative and consultative Shoura Council recently approved (22-Apr-2013) Saudi Arabia switching its weekend to Friday-Saturday from the previous Thursday-Friday.
