The Egyptian Cabinet announced a public holiday for employees next Thursday, instead of Wednesday, on the anniversary of the 30 June Revolution in 2013.

The holiday will be paid for public employees at ministries, governmental institutions, public sector companies and authorities and local administration units, according to a decree by Prime Minister Mostafa Madbouly.

The private sector is also included in the decision, but exams scheduled on 1 July will run as scheduled, according to the decree.

The government decided last year to grant a day off on Thursdays, in cases when national holidays fall on weekdays.

This does not apply on Eid Al-Fitr or Eid Al-Adha, which last for several days, or on Christmas.
