The Office of the Prime Minister wishes to advise the general populace and particularly residents of Carriacou and Petite Martinique that due to the impending general elections scheduled for 19th February 2013, it will not be possible to grant/declare a bank holiday on the dates associated with Carriacou Carnival, as was done in the last few years.
The Government anticipates the Carnival will proceed as was done in the past when no bank holiday was declared and internal arrangements were made by the participants in the Carnival activities.
The Government takes this opportunity to wish all participants a peaceful and enjoyable Carnival.
