Slovak MPs have approved the earlier proposal by the government of Slovakia that Slovakia celebrate the centenary of its independence with a one-off non-working public holiday on October 30, 2018.

Earlier this year (2018-05-25), the government of Slovakia had approved, in principle, a recommendation by Prime Minister Peter Pellegrini (Smer) that Slovakia should celebrate the centenary of its independence with a one-off non-working public holiday in Slovakia on October 30, 2018.

The aforementioned declaration of a one-off non-working public holiday in Slovakia on October 30, 2018 ("100. výročie prijatia Deklarácie slovenského národa"), to celebrate the centenary of Slovakia's independence, thus amends the annual official list of 2018 Slovakian bank holidays and non-working public holidays in Slovakia for the calendar year 2018, as released last year by Slovakia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs (2017-07-26).

The TASR news service reports that the proposal to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Slovakia on October 30, 2018, was supported by the 96 MPs present.
