Guyana's Minister of Home Affairs, Robeson Benn, has signed the Gazette Notification 29/2022/259 (Notification - The Public Holidays Act 2022) declaring Wednesday, February 23, 2022, as a public holiday in Guyana, on account of Republic Day.

The announcement that Tuesday, February 23, 2021, would be the date for the Republic Day annual public holiday of Guyana, does not go on to state that "As Republic Day falls on a Sunday, the following day, is declared a public holiday", as was the case 2 years ago (2020-02-01).

The aforementioned Gazette Notification 29/2022/259 is in line with the annual list of Guyanese bank holidays and public holidays in Guyana for the calendar year 2022 as released by the government of Guyana, late last year (2021-11-22).
