Sources within the Moldavian executive have informed us that a draft decree on the declaration of June 1st, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, as voted late last week by Moldova's Parliament, would be considered at tomorrow's, May 31st, Cabinet meeting, and that it is expected that the Cabinet of the Government of Moldova will approve the declaration of International Children's Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova.
Today's unofficial announcement follows last week's passage by Moldova's Parliament of a bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova (2016-05-27).
However, as we mentioned in our earlier post, for the aforementioned law declaring International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, to take effect this year, it needed to be transcribed into the Moldovan Labour Code before Wednesday, which will be cutting it too close. As a consequence, the declaration of Wednesday, June 1st, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, will be compensated by having Saturday, June 25, 2016, declared as a regular working day.
The declaration of Wednesday, June 1st, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, thus amends the list of the annual non-working 2016 public holidays in in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2016" and the later "Cu privire la transferul zilei de odihnă în anul 2016"), released last fall (2015-10-26) by the government of Moldova, and which was then completed (2015-12-28 and 2015-12-16).
The last time a new annual non-working public holiday was added to the list of annual public holidays in Moldova, was 3 year ago (2013-12-19 and 2009-12-04), when a bill introduced by the government of Moldova, to declare Western Christmas as an annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, was passed by a majority of legislators from the then current ruling coalition.
