Angolan MEPs are working on a draft bill, the Lei de Alteração à Lei dos Feriados Nacionais, Locais e Datas de Celebração Nacional, which would amend the current public holidays legislation of Angola by adding 2 new annual non-working public holidays in Angola and adding some bridge holiday provisions for fixed-date Angolan public holidays falling on a Tuesday or Thursday.
The current public holidays legislation of Angola is the "Ley de los Feriados Nacionales y Locales" which revised the legislation on public holidays in Angola, almost a decade ago (15-Feb-2011, 20-Jan-2011 and 16-Dec-2010). At that time the preceding changes to the public holidays legislation of Angola dated from 2003 (24-Mar-2003) and before that from 1996 (30-Sep-1996).
The aforementioned changes to the current Angolan legislation on public holidays is scheduled for a vote on June 21, 2018, at the same time as a new legislative package on the Angolan Armed Forces.
The bill, in its current form, would stop the practice of declaring a day in lieu public holiday on the Monday which follows a fixed date public holiday which falls on a Sunday.
