The Egyptian Cabinet has announced that Prime Minister, Mostafa Madbouly, had issued a decree declaring Thursday, July 1st, 2021, as the date for the upcoming June 30th Anniversary Day public holiday in Egypt, rather than the usual date of June 30th.
Recall that, last year (2020-06-28), the Government of Egypt had announced that it would start to move fixed-date mid-week public holidays to the following Thursday "to give citizens a chance to have a long weekend".
This change was implemented for the first time, when the October 6 public holiday was moved to October 8, 2020 (2020-10-05 and 2020-10-01).
Then, this year, Prime Minister Madbouly similarly announced that Thursday, January 28, 2021, would be a public holiday in Egypt, on account of the annual, January 25, January Revolution and National Police Day (2021-01-21 and 2021-01-20), then that Sinai Liberation Day would be observed on Thursday, April 29, 2021, rather than the usual date of April 25 (2021-04-28 and 2021-04-22).
