Eid: Monday 24 April declared public holiday

The Ministry for the Interior has declared Monday, 24 April 2023, a public holiday.

This is because Saturday, 22 April 2023 marks Eid-ul-Fitr, which is a statutory public holiday.

However, in view of the fact that 22 April falls on a Saturday, the president has, by an executive instrument, in accordance with Section 2 of the Public Holidays and Commemorative Days Act (ACT 601) declared Monday, 24 April 2023, as an additional public holiday.

A statement signed by the Minister for the Interior, Mr Ambrose Dery, said the holiday should be observed as such throughout the country.

Eid al-Fitr is the earlier of the two official holidays celebrated within Islam.

The religious holiday is celebrated by Muslims worldwide to mark the end of the month-long dawn-to-sunset fasting of Ramadan.
