Malta 2017 Public Holidays Announced

Malta's Government has published its annual official list of Malta national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2017.

As was the case for the past 3 years (2016-01-09, 2015-01-07 and 2014-01-10), the aforementioned announcement, of the official list of national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2017, was made much later than the 2013 public holidays list for Malta (2012-02-11), although not as early as it was made for the past in years before (2011-01-05 and 2010-01-07).

Note that some additional Malta 2017 bank holidays restricted to banks and financial institutions are usually declared much later, often on a case-by-case basis (2009-12-23, 2009-04-10, and 2008-12-19), though not always (2016-01-24, 2015-02-06, 2014-03-04 and 2011-04-20), and less commonly in past years.

None of the aforementioned list of national holidays and non-working public holidays in Malta for the calendar year 2017 is moved to a Monday, despite the 2013 general elections victory of Malta's Labour Party (2013-03-10), and their promise (2013-02-01 and 2012-08-28) to restore the system of Monday holidays when a public holiday fell on a Sunday (2005-01-15) and recent calls for the reinstatement of days in lieu (2016-08-29).
