The government of Armenia approved the bill on amending the “Holiday and Commemoration Days” law, whereby the 3rd, 4th and 5th of January will no longer be considered holidays in Armenia.
Chief of Staff of the government Vahe Stepanyan said at the Cabinet meeting that the amendments will come into force from June 1, 2018.
The bill was passed unanimously.
The amendments come as the government found it necessary to consider only the Armenian Christmas holidays. And the fact that those 3 days is also inappropriate in social-economic terms.
