Moldova's Cabinet has yet to decide whether or not to declare Friday, September 1, 2017, as a one-off bridge public sector holiday in Moldova to link the weekend to the annual August 31 National Language Day public holiday of Moldova.

The declaration of Friday, September 1, 2017, as a one-off bridge public sector holiday in Moldova to link the weekend to the annual August 31 National Language Day public holiday of Moldova, had originally been announced last autumn (2016-10-17), when the government of Moldova announced an extension to the list of 2017 annual non-working public holidays in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2017"), by adding 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova for the calendar year 2017.

However, later that autumn (2016-12-02), the proposal to add 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova to the annual official list of non-working public holidays in Moldova, was stalled by opposition to it from Deputy Education Minister, Christine Boag, and was placed on hold "sine die".

Since then, 2 of these 3 one-off 2017 non-working public holidays in Moldova have been confirmed, albeit at the last minute (2017-05-24 and 2017-04-26).

As usual (2016-10-17, 2015-12-16, 2015-10-26, 2013-12-07, 2013-02-08, 2012-02-22 and 2011-08-10), the eventual decision by the Moldovan Cabinet of Ministers to declare Friday, September 1, 2017, a one-off non-working public holiday would be compensated by Saturday, September 9, 2017, being declared a regular working day in Moldova.
