The Paraguayan government has announced that the upcoming May 14-15 Independence Day public holidays would be observed on Friday and Saturday, May 14-15, 2021, and that neither public holiday would be moved due to the coinciding weekend.

A similar announcement had been made, 3 years ago (2018-05-01), when the Paraguayan head of presidential decrees, Édgar Rodas, released a communique confirming that May 14 was a permanent part of the list of dates of the Paraguayan public holidays, as per law 4.531.

Although Paraguayan public holidays legislation is clear on the matter of the annual May 14 and 15 public holidays ("son inamovibles, por una cuestión legislativa"), it seems that there is a need for a government clarification, almost every year (2019-04-23, 2018-05-01, 2016-04-09, 2014-04-29, 2013-04-08, 2012-04-12, 2011-11-30, 2011-05-10, 2011-03-11, 2011-01-29, 2011-01-12, 2010-05-13).
