Estonian Bill To Extend Easter Public Holidays

The constitutional committee of the Estonian parliament has rejected a proposal of the Estonian Conservative People's Party (EKRE) to declare Easter Monday as a new annual non-working public holiday in Estonia.

Almost a decade ago (2011-05-17), Estonia's Centre Party had introduced legislation that would have made Easter Monday a non-working public holiday in Estonia, beginning in 2012.

Before that, the last time the list of Estonian non-working public holidays (1998-01-27) was modified was in 2005, when Estonia's parliament approved the Public and National Holidays Act, § 2 and § Work and Rest Law Amendment Act 25 (RT I 2005, 24, 185) which declared December 24 as a new annual public holiday (2005-04-15).
