NO PUBLIC HOLIDAY FOR REMEMBRANCE DAY AS IT FALLS ON A SATURDAY

There is no public holiday to commemorate Remembrance Day as it falls on the weekend.

This is the message from the Secretary of the Department of Prime Minister and National Executive Council, Mr Ivan Pomaleu after certain misinformation had been doing the rounds in the public domain.

“Saturday 23rd July is the gazetted day to commemorate the Remembrance Day. It will be observed on that day, with a ceremony in Port Moresby and possibly other parts of the country,” Mr Pomaleu stated in the circular.

He said there has been no official change to this approved day; therefore, Friday 22nd July and Monday 25th July are normal working days.
