Cyprus' Government spokesman, Prodromos Prodromou, has announced that, following the death of former Cypriot President, Dimitris Christofias, Tuesday, June 25, 2019, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Cyprus.
The aforementioned declaration of Tuesday, June 25, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Cyprus, following the death of former Cypriot President, Dimitris Christofias, thus amends the list of official public holidays of Cyprus, as announced a couple of years ago (2017-11-10).
The death of former Cypriot Presidents is the recurring cause for the declaration of one-off non-working public holidays in Cyprus.
The government of Cyprus has declared Tuesday, November 19, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Cyprus (2013-11-16), and a few years before that (2008-12-12), Cyprus' President, Demetris Christofias, similarly declared a one-off public holiday, on Monday, December 15, 2008, to coincide with the funeral of the ex-President of Cyprus, Tassos Papadopoulos.
