The Government of Morocco has ruled-out the cancellation of the upcoming Fête de la Jeunesse annual public holiday of Morocco, held on the date of Moroccan King Mohammed VI, following his recent announcement that he did not wish for any festivities to be held on the date of his birthday.

As per governmental sources, the aforementioned cancellation of all festivities on August 21, does not automatically cancel the Fête de la Jeunesse annual public holiday of Morocco, and bring into question the dates of the non-working public holidays in Morocco for the calendar year 2019, as announced earlier this year (2019-01-02).

As specified by the quoted government source, the date of August 21 remains a public holiday in Morocco, until the corresponding "décret de février 1977, modifié en mai 2000" is amended.
