Peru Votes October 31 Public Holiday
 
(Posted on Friday, October 20, 2017)

The bill introduced by Congresista Karina Beteta, to declare October 31, Reformation Day, a new paid annual non-working public holiday in Peru (con carácter de feriado no laborable) has, surprisingly, been passed at the eleventh hour by Peru's Congress in its ultimate sessions of the current legislature.

The aforementioned bill was introduced in Peru's Parliament a year ago (18-Nov-2016), by Congresista Karina Beteta. A similar bill to declare October 31, Reformation Day, a new paid public holiday in Peru (con carácter de feriado no laborable) had been introduced in Peru's Parliament, almost a decade ago (11-Nov-2008), but went nowhere.

Around the same time (11-Oct-2008, 20-Sep-2008, 22-Nov-2007, 18-Oct-2007 and 10-Nov-2006) Chile declared a new annual public holiday in Chile bearing the same name as that proposed in the 2 aforementioned Peruvian bills, the Día Nacional de las Iglesias Evangélicas y Protestantes.

This past summer (), a bill was introduced into Argentina's Lower House (Cámara de Diputados), by MP Marcelo Daletto (UCR), which would similarly have added a new annual non-working public holiday in Argentina on October 31st, to mark the "Día de las Iglesias Evangélicas".
