Peru's Minister of Labour (Ministerio de Trabajo y Promoción del Empleo-MTPE), Daniel Maurate, has issued another communique squashing the social media rumours about the declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Peru on Monday, May 2, 2016, on account of the annual, May 1st, non-working public holiday in Peru, falling on a Sunday.

The persistent rumours on Peruvian social media came from people finding undated news reports of an executive order (Decreto Supremo No. 019-2011-PCM), dating from 5 years ago (2011-03-06), declaring 5 additional public sector holidays for the calendar year 2011, one of which being Monday, May 2, 2011.

The aforementioned announcement that Monday, May 2, 2016, would not be an additional non-working public holiday in Peru, due to the annual, May 1st, non-working public holiday in Peru, falling on a Sunday, is in line with the list of 2016 public holidays in Peru, as released by the government of Peru, late last year (2015-12-31).
