Paraguay's President, Mario Abdo Benítez, has signed a decree which declares a non-working public sector holiday on May 2, 2022, due to the annual May 1st public holiday falling on a Sunday, in 2022.

As per the aforementioned decree, "A fin de seguir reactivando nuestra economía, en la línea de las últimas medidas implementadas por el Gobierno Nacional, hemos decidido pasar el feriado del Día del Trabajador, del domingo 1 de mayo al lunes 2 de mayo".

The last time that May 1st fell on a weekend, the Paraguayan head of presidential decrees, Édgar Rodas, ruled-out the move of any of Paraguay's May 2016 public holidays (May 1, May 14 and 15), though all 3 public holidays fell on weekend days during the calendar year 2016 (2016-04-09).
