The Peruvian president, Martín Vizcarra, has once again canceled 2 upcoming Peruvian public holidays, this time cancelling the October 8 annual public holiday commemorating the battle of Angamos, as well as the one-off public sector holiday on October 9, 2020 ("Consequently, the 8th, which is a national holiday, and the 9th (October), which had been declared a conditional holiday, will be work").

As per the gazette entry in the Diario Oficial El Peruano, "En consecuencia, el 8 que es un feriado nacional, y el 9 (de octubre) que se había declarado feriado condicional, van a ser laborales.".

Recall that, this past summer (2020-07-11 and 2020-07-03), The Peruvian president, Martín Vizcarra, had already canceled one of the days of the 2020 Fiestas Patrias public holidays ("Hemos estado, porque era necesario, mucho tiempo con la economía parada, ahora no tenemos tiempo que perder y tenemos que incorporar todos los esfuerzos para producir, crecer y generar trabajo"), as well as the one-off government holiday that had been declared in the list of 2020 public holidays in Peru, as contained in the Decreto Supremo Nº 197-2019-PCM, gazetted by the Peruvian government, late last year (2019-12-21).
