The Moldavian Cabinet has once again approved a decree on the declaration of June 1st, 2017, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, on account of International Children's Day.

Last year (2016-05-30 and 2016-05-27), Moldova's Parliament passed a bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, but so late that, to take effect in 2016, it would have needed to be transcribed into the Moldovan Labour Code in less than a week. As a consequence, the declaration of Wednesday, June 1st, 2016, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, was be compensated by having Saturday, June 25, 2016, declared as a regular working day.

Now, a year later, the bill to make June 1st, International Children's Day, a new annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, has still not been transcribed into the Moldovan Labour Code, and as a consequence, the declaration of Thursday, June 1st, 2017, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, is to be compensated by having Saturday, June 24, 2017, declared as a regular working day

The declaration of Thursday, June 1st, 2017, as a non-working public holiday in Moldova, thus amends the list of the annual non-working 2017 public holidays in in Moldova ("cu privire la zilele de odihna în anul 2017", released last fall by the government of Moldova (2016-10-17).

The last time a new annual non-working public holiday was added to the list of annual public holidays in Moldova, was 4 year ago (2013-12-19 and 2009-12-04), when a bill introduced by the government of Moldova, to declare Western Christmas as an annual non-working public holiday in Moldova, was passed by a majority of legislators from the then current ruling coalition.
