Paraguay's president, Horacio Cartes, had signed executive decree No.6437 making the afternoon of Wednesday, December 7, 2016, once again a one-off public sector holiday in Paraguay, beginning at 12:00, noon, local time.
This decree, which applies to "la administración pública y las entidades descentralizadas", and is in addition to the list of annual non-working public holidays in Paraguay for 2016 as announced late last year (2015-12-10), follows similar half-day public sector holidays declared on various occasions, in the past (2009-09-09 and 2009-04-06), and precedes the December 8 annual nationwide public holiday in Paraguay for the Virgen de Caacupé (2015-12-10).
