Madagascar's government spokesperson has released the minutes of the January 5 Cabinet meeting in which the list of 2022 public holidays in Madagascar was approved in the "Décret n°2022-002 fixant la liste des jours fériés, chômés et payés au titre de l’année 2022".

The aforementioned Décret n°2022-002, was signed by the Ministre de l’Economie et des Finances, Rindra Hasimbelo Rabarinirinarison, the Ministre du Travail, de L’emploi, de la Fonction Publique et des Lois Sociales, Gisèle Ranampy, and the Ministre de la Communication et de la Culture, Lalatiana Rakotondrazafy, as per custom (2021-01-08, 2020-01-04, 2019-03-09, 2018-02-26, 2017-02-01, 2016-01-05, 2015-02-05, 2014-02-13, 2013-01-30, 2012-01-18, 2011-01-15, 2010-01-20, 2009-01-13 and 2008-01-16).

It confirms the cancellation, 8 years ago (2014-12-04), of the December 11 public holiday which was created at the end of 2010 (2010-12-10).

In the aforementioned list of 2022 Madagascar public holidays, the 2 public holidays previously reserved for Muslims (2014-02-13 and 2013-01-30), are once again for the entire population (2016-01-05, 2015-04-30 and 2015-03-26) as per Article 2 which reads "Sont déclarées fériées, chômées et payées les journées prévues pour les Eid Al-Fitr et Eid Al Adha, suivant le calendrier fixé par la Communauté Musulmane".

We can therefore expect the announcement of 2 additional one-off non-working public holidays in 2022 in Madagascar, as was done in the past (2021-07-16, 2021-05-12, 2020-07-28, 2019-05-30, 2018-12-13, 2018-09-21, 2013-08-19, 2013-06-07, 2013-02-10, 2012-08-02, 2012-07-19, 2012-06-08, 2011-01-15, 2011-01-10, 2010-12-20, and 2010-11-16).
