The president of Croatia, Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović, has signed into law the recently-voted Law on Holidays, Remembrances and Non-working Days in the Republic of Croatia ("Zakon o blagdanima, spomendanima i neradnim danima u Republici Hrvatskoj"), which makes controversial changes to the official list of public holidays in Croatia.

Last autumn (2019-11-13, 2019-10-10 and 2019-10-07), the Croatian government had announced the details of its plans to amend the Croatian law on public holidays to declare a new Vukovar Remembrance Day national non-working public holiday in Croatia, and shift the dates of the Independence Day and Statehood Day holidays of Croatia, and make both these dates regular working days, thus keeping the initial government pledge that "the number of public holidays will not increase and will remain at 13 which is important from the economic aspect, because of the impact on the economy, GDP growth and everything that entails".
