Monday declared a special public holiday


Ministry of Public Administration, Home Affairs, Provincial Councils and Local Government announced Monday (13), as a special public holiday.

The decision was made in view of the transport constraints and disruptions to the smooth functioning of offices during power outages.

“Monday (13), the day before Poson Full Moon Day, which has already been declared a public holiday, is also declared as a special public holiday,” the statement of the ministry said.

“Furthermore, this should not be an obstacle for the maintenance of essential services,” the Ministry added.

All Government schools, Government-approved private schools and Catholic schools will be closed on Monday as well.
