Paraguay's President, Mario Abdo Benítez, has decreed a non-working public sector holiday for the "Día del Funcionario Público" on Wednesday afternoon, February 27, 2019.
As per the aforementioned Decreto Nº 1352, Paraguay's public servants will be off the afternoon of Wednesday afternoon, February 27, 2019 ("se declara asueto para la administración pública y entidades descentralizadas, el día miércoles 27 de febrero a partir de las 12:00 horas").
One-off public sector holidays have been common in Paraguay in the past, most commonly for Holy Wednesday (2016-03-18, 2015-03-20, 2014-04-11, 2013-03-16, 2012-04-03, 2011-04-18, 2010-03-30 and 2009-04-06), and for the year-end (2016-12-13, 2014-12-22, 2012-12-07, 2011-12-19, 2010-12-23 and 2009-12-23), though often, under former President Fernando Lugo, only for the afternoon.
