Algerian 2017 Ashura Public Holiday Announced
 
(Posted on Wednesday, September 27, 2017)

Source: Direction Générale de la Fonction Publique (Algiers)

The Algerian Ministry of Labour (Ministère du Travail, de l'Emploi et de la Sécurité Sociale) has announced that Sunday, October 1, 2017, had been declared as the date of the "10 Moharram 1439 de l'Hégire" and a non-working public holiday in Algeria on account of annual Achoura (Ashura) non-working public holiday in Algeria.

Last month (18-Sep-2017), as was done in past years (28-Sep-2016 and 13-Oct-2015), the same Algerian public sector ministry (Direction Générale de la Fonction Publique) had announced that Friday, September 22, 2017, had been declared as a non-working public holiday in Algeria on account of the upcoming Hijri 1439 Islamic New Year annual non-working public holiday of Algeria, which logically would mean that Sunday, October 1, 2017, would be declared as the date of the non-working public holiday in Algeria on account of annual Achoura.

Eight years ago (24-Jul-2009), the Algerian government changed its weekends from Thursday/Friday to the "mixed" or "semi-universal" Friday/Saturday weekend.
