Argentina Rules-Out June 16 Public Holiday

Argentina's Ministry of the Interior has announced that the upcoming June public holidays commemorating the death of Martín Miguel de Güemes and Flag Day would run for only 4 consecutive days, and that Thursday, June 16, 2022, would not be decreed a one-off public holiday.

Recall that, last month, Jujeño legislators from the Frente de Todos submitted a bill to Argentina's Lower House, which would declare Thursday, June 16, 2022, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina, to commemorate the 200th anniversary of the death of General Manuel Eduardo Arias (2022-04-21).

If Thursday, June 16, 2022, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Argentina, then it would have meant a 5-day public holiday, as June 16th adjoins the Friday, June 17, public holiday commemorating the death of Martín Miguel de Güemes, and a weekend that is followed by the Monday, June 20, Flag Day public holiday (2021-11-13).
