Indonesia's Minister of Administrative and Bureaucratic Reform (MenPAN RB), Tjahjo Kumolo, has announced that the Indonesian government would immediately revise the Joint Decree of 2020 public holidays in Indonesia, to cut the 11-day public holidays at the end of December 2020, after evaluating the health impact of the last long public holidays in October ("In the next few days the Coordinating Minister for PMK will be meeting to revise the decision for year-end holidays").

Today's announcement comes on the heels of yesterday's, by Indonesia's Coordinating Human Development and Culture Minister, Muhadjir Effendy, that Indonesia's President, Joko Widodo, could soon decide to reduce the number of Indonesian public holidays at the end of December 2020 (2020-11-23), which are currently set to run from Thursday, December 24, 2020, until Sunday, January 3, 2021, inclusively, due to the latest of a series of 2020 public holidays amendments (2020-04-09 and 2020-04-02), which moved the Idul Fitri (End of Ramadan) joint leave holidays, then scheduled for May 26-29, to December 28-31, 2020.

The list of public holidays in Indonesia for the current year was announced in the summer of last year (2019-08-27), and amended multiple times since then due to the Covid-19 pandemic (2020-05-20, 2020-04-09, 2020-04-02, and 2020-03-09).
