Bolivia presidential candidate, Oscar Ortiz, has announced that, if elected, he would move to cancel the January 22, annual public holiday, celebrating Evo Morales' second inauguration as President of Bolivia, with one on February 21, commemorating the victory of the "No" in the constitutional referendum.

Nine years ago (20-Jan-2010), January 22, was declared a one-off public holiday, the "Día de la Fundación del Estado Plurinacional de Bolivia", to coincide with Juan Evo Morales Ayma's second inauguration as President of Bolivia. The January 22 public holiday was confirmed as an annual non-working public holiday for both the private and public sectors, nationwide ("se declaró feriado nacional con la suspensión de actividades públicas y privadas de todo el territorio nacional"), the following year (13-Jan-2011), with a confirmation, a year later (05-Jan-2012) that the January 22 public holiday of Bolivia would follow the day in lieu system, as had recently been done (21-Dec-2011), when the government of Bolivia declared an additional one-off non-working public holiday throughout Bolivia, due to the January 22 annual public holiday falling on a Sunday in the calendar year 2012.
