Late last night, the President of Maurtitania, Mohamed Ould Abdel Aziz, has issued a communique once again extending the previously-announced date of Wednesday, July 6, 2016, by one day for the upcoming Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania ("La journée du jeudi 07 juillet 2016, lendemain de la fête de l'Aïd El Fitr sera fériée, chômée et payée sur toute l'étendue du territoire national.").

The aforementioned date of Wednesday, July 6, 2016, for the first day of the Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania, had been in line with the dates that were announced, late last year (2015-12-28), in the list of official non-working public holidays in Mauritania for the calendar year 2016.

Such extension, to a second day, of the Aid El Fitr (End of Ramadan) annual non-working public holiday in Mauritania, is common (2014-07-28 and 2014-07-27).
