The government of the Ivory Coast, through its Ministère de l'Emploi, des Affaires Sociales et de la Solidarité Nationale, has announced that it had declared Saturday, July 2, 2016, as the date of the annual national non-working public holiday ("jour férié et chômé sur toute l'étendue du territoire national") on account of the upcoming "Nuit du destin" (Laylat al-Qadr).

Contrary to what happened in past years (2012-08-18), but not all (2015-07-11), the Government announcement that Saturday, July 2, 2016, had been declared as the date of the annual national non-working public holiday ("jour férié et chômé sur toute l'étendue du territoire national") on account of the upcoming Revelation of the Quoran, did not need to invoke Article 2 of the Décret n°96-205 du 07 mars 1996 (1996-05-09).
