The Parliament of Kyrgyzstan has approved by a final vote of 87-4 the passage of the draft law on the establishment of November 7-8 as a "Days of History and Memory of Ancestors".
Today's final passage of the, follows the approval, late last month (31-Oct-2017) of the the draft law on the establishment of November 7-8 as a "Days of History and Memory of Ancestors", by the parliamentary committee on social affairs, education, science, culture and healthcare of the Parliament of Kyrgyzstan, and the announcement, earlier the preceding week (26-Oct-2017), that President Almazbek Atambaev had signed a decree "On Establishing Days of History and Memory of Ancestors", which "recommends to the deputies of the Jogorku Kenesh of the Kyrgyz Republic to make relevant changes to the Labor Code of the Kyrgyz Republic related to the announcement on 7 and 8 November of non-working holidays".
The November 7 public holiday of the Kyrgyz Republic had been removed from the list of Kyrgyzstan public holidays in 1991, following the fall of the Soviet Union. But, a decade later (10-Dec-2001), Kyrgyzstan's parliament voted to reinstate the November 7 annual anniversary of Russia's 1917 Bolshevik revolution as a non-working public holiday.
