Panama's Ministro de Trabajo y Desarrollo Laboral (Mitradel), through its Minister, Luis Ernesto Carles, has announced that he would ask the National Assembly to re-establish the moveable status of the upcoming November 28, annual public holiday of Panama.

For the past few years (2017-02-03, 2016-01-04, 2015-01-09, and 2014-11-30), the November 28, Día de la Independencia de Panamá de España, was no longer moved from its set date, as the "Ley 70 del 28 de diciembre de 2007" (2008-01-03 and 2007-12-30) which restored the mechanism of días puente (bridge holidays) to the January 9 and November 28 annual non-working public holidays of Panama (Gaceta No. 25950 del 2 de enero de 2008) was partially abrogated, thus going back to the situation of the "Ley 51 que deroga el Decreto Ley Nº 8 de 1997, que estableció los días puentes y modifica el Articulo 46 del Código de Trabajo 03-X-1999" (1999-11-01).
