Last Friday (11/9), the government has set national holidays and mass leaves in 2021. The decree was signed by the Minister of Religion (Menag), the Minister of Manpower (Menaker), and the Minister of Administrative Reform and Bureaucratic Reform (PANRB).
Reporting from a press release, Coordinating Minister for Human Development and Cultural Affairs (Menko PMK), Muhadjir Effendy said the total national holidays and mass leaves in 2021 are 23 days.
There have been a number of changes from the initial plans for national holidays and mass leaves in 2021. For the holiday of Eid al-Fitr, the plan will be shifted from 10 – 17 May, which will change to 12 – 19 May. Meanwhile, for the Christmas holidays, the government set additional mass leave on 27 December. Originally, Christmas leave was only for 24 December.
Muhadjir said, the determination of national holidays and mass leaves in 2021 was made with several considerations. Starting from regulating traffic flow during the Lebaran homecoming season, to opportunities for increasing regional and state economies from the tourism sector.
