The government of Nepal, at its latest cabinet meeting, decided to change the date of the official National Day public holiday in Nepal, from May 28, as recently-announced in the list of official non-working public holidays in Nepal for the Nepalese year B.S. 2073 (April 2016-April 2017), to the date of the anniversary of the signing of the new constitution last year, on September 20.
The aforementioned announcement thus amends last month's (02-Apr-2016) published list of the annual non-working public holidays in Nepal for B.S. 2073 (April 2016-April 2017), which had already departed from the the list of annual non-working public holidays in Nepal, as announced in previous years (03-Mar-2015, 02-Mar-2014, 24-Apr-2013, 29-Mar-2012 and 30-Jan-2012), by the replacement of the Loktantra Diwas (Democracy Day) Nepalese public holiday, added a decade ago (16-Apr-2007), by an annual observance of a Constitution Day Nepalese public holiday, which had been declared a one-off public holiday in Nepal last year (16-Sep-2015).
As the date of official national days isusually commemorated by telegrams from other heads of state, the announcement that the date of the official National Day public holiday in Nepal had been moved to September 20, was made by the Nepalese Foreign Ministry, as opposed to the usual practice of announcing public holidays in Nepal through Home Ministry.
