The government of Tajikistan has issued a communique clarifying that the new annual holiday in Tajikistan, to mark the presidency of Tajikistan's longtime ruler Emomali Rakhmon, introduced last spring, would not be a non-working public holiday in Tajikistan, contrary to the reports issued at the time.
Last spring (15-May-2016), Tajikistan's President, Emomali Rahmon, had issued a decree signing into law the public holidays amendments passed, the month before (08-Apr-2016), by Tajikistan's lower chamber of parliament (the Majlisi Namoyandagon) and which declared a new national holiday in Tajikistan to mark the presidency of Tajikistan's longtime ruler Emomali Rakhmon.
A similar annual, but non-working, public holiday was declared in neighboring Kazakhstan five years ago (15-Dec-2011 and 11-Dec-2011), when Kazakhstan adopted an amendment to the Kazakh law On holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan to establish a new annual state non-working public holiday in Kazakhstan, the Day of the First President of Kazakhstan, on December 1st.
