The Algerian Direction générale de la Fonction publique et de la Réforme administrative et du ministère du Travail, de l’Emploi et de la Sécurité sociale has announced that Wednesday, January 12, 2022, had been declared a public holiday in Algeria to mark the upcoming Amenzu n Yenayer (Amazigh New Year).

The aforementioned announcement reads "La journée du mercredi 12 janvier, correspondant à Amenzu n Yennayer, jour de l'An amazigh, sera chômée et payée pour l'ensemble des personnels des institutions et administrations publiques, des établissements et offices publics et privés, a indiqué dimanche dans un communiqué, la direction générale de la Fonction publique et la Réforme administrative.", and it echoes previous years' announcements of public holidays to mark Amazigh New Year in Algeria (2021-01-10 and 2020-01-07).

The Amazigh New Year was approved as a new annual public holiday in Algeria, by Algeria's Council of Ministers, and then by Algeria's Popular Assembly (APN), a few years ago (2018-03-11, 2018-01-10 and 2017-12-27).
