The Information Support Department of the Government of the Kyrgyz Republic has announced that Prime Minister Sapar Isakov had signed a resolution "On postponing the weekend", whereby, in addition to Tuesday, November 7, 2017, being an official non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstan, Monday, November 6, 2017, has now also been declared an additional one-off official non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstanon, both days on account of the upcoming Day of the Great October Socialist Revolution, annual non-working public holiday of the Kyrgyz Republic.
Earlier this week (24-Oct-2017), the Kyrgyz Ministry of Labour, Migration and Youth had announced that Tuesday, November 7, 2017, would be an official non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstan, on account of the upcoming Day of the Great October Socialist Revolution, annual non-working public holiday of the Kyrgyz Republic, an announcement, as those in past years (28-Oct-2015, 02-Nov-2012 and 02-Nov-2011), made in accordance with Article 113 of the Labor Code, and in line with the approved calendar of 2017 public holidays of the Kyrgyz Republic as announced late last year (09-Jan-2017).
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.
As is commonly done in Kyrgyzstan (29-Mar-2017, 13-Mar-2017, 14-Dec-2016, 20-Apr-2016, 16-Feb-2016, 24-Dec-2015, 26-Dec-2014, 28-Apr-2013, 31-Dec-2011, 11-Nov-2010, 25-Aug-2010, 15-Feb-2010, 11-Dec-2009, 19-Dec-2008 and 27-Dec-2007), in compensation for Monday, November 6, 2017, being declared an additional one-off official non-working public holiday in Kyrgyzstan, Saturday, October 28, 2017, has been declared a regular working day in Kyrgyzstan.
Today's announcement was complemented by a separate announcement 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".
