The Ministry of Health and Social Development of the government of Kazakhstan has released a surprisingly early draft of the annual list of non-working public holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan for the upcoming calendar year 2017.

In previous years (2016-01-13, 2015-01-17, 2013-12-26, 2013-02-18, 2012-02-17 and 2011-01-14), the list of non-working public holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan was announced either in December or January, sometimes even February of the year in question, later followed by amendments, as regards to days in lieu and bridge holidays and compensatory working Saturdays (2016-03-28, 2016-03-14, 2016-03-03,...).

As per the spokesperson of the Ministry of Health and Social Development of the government of Kazakhstan, the aforementioned early announcement of the list of non-working public holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan for the upcoming calendar year 2017, including bridge holidays and compensatory working Saturdays, was made at the behest of MPs who had besieged the government of Kazakhstan to announce public holidays in Kazakhstan for the coming years, much earlier.
