DR Congo Public Holidays January 15-16

The "Ministère de l'Emploi, du Travail et de la Prévoyance Sociale" of the government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, has announced that Friday and Saturday, January 15-16, 2016, would be non-working public holidays in the Democratic Republic of the Congo ("Les journées du vendredi 15 et samedi 16 janvier seront chômées et payées sur toute l'étendue du territoire nationale").

The aforementioned announcement (02-Feb-2015) is due to the annual January 17 public holiday of the RDC falling on a Sunday in 2016 ("le férié a été avancé au vendredi 15 puisque la journée du 17 est un dimanche"), whereby the Ordonnance no 71-326 du 31 décembre 1971 fixant les jours fériés légaux and the "Ordonnance Présidentielle n° 79/154 du 23 juin 1979", gives the DRC government the flexibility of declaring a day in lieu public holiday on the day before, as was done this time, or the day after, as was done under similar circumstances, six years ago (15-Jan-2010).
