The Angolan National Assembly has postponed the scheduled final vote on the "Law of Amendment to the Law of National Holidays, Locations and Dates of National Celebration" due to a persisting lack of consensus among political parties.
Last month (22-Jun-2018), the Angolan National Assembly has approved, but without consensus, the aforementioned Lei de Alteração à Lei dos Feriados Nacionais, Locais e Datas de Celebração Nacional, which came to the fore and onto the legislative roster, earlier the same month (09-Jun-2018), and would amend the current public holidays legislation of Angola by 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).
Notwithstanding yesterday's postponement, SAPO Noticias reports that "the Speaker of the National Assembly said only that it is expected that the bill will be approved at the next session, scheduled for August 9".
