The government of Timor Leste has announced that it had once again decided to declare a non-working public holiday in Timor Leste on Friday, November 3, 2017, "to mark the National Women's Day".
November 3 was also declared a public holiday, last year (2016-10-29), but at that time no mention was made of Timor Leste's National Women's Day, and we just assumed that it was an extension to the 2016 annual All Saints Day and All Souls Day non-working public holidays in Timor Leste.
In any event, according to the Secretariat of State of the Council of Ministers of Timor Leste, this decision is based on law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (2005-08-12) and the list of official public holidays in Timor Leste for the calendar year 2017, which was announced at the beginning of this year (2017-01-18).
