January 6, 2008 (KHARTOUM) – Sudanese cabinet today has decided to adopt a two-day weekend starting from January 26.

The Council of Ministers on Sunday decided to expand the weekend holiday from the current one day (Friday) to two days (Friday and Saturday) beginning from Saturday January 26, for a period of six month for studying and assessment.

The Council of Ministers called on the Ministry of Labour to adopt the necessary arrangements to implement this decision in a manner that comply with the national and international labour laws and guarantee enhancement of the productivity.

The Cabinet also instructed the Ministry of Education and the Ministries of Education in the states to study the experiment and to determine its impact on the academic year and the education process so as to cope with this situation.

Khartoum state adopted since last week the two-day week end.

    I think it was a good decision for a country like Sudan. Government expenditures will be reduced by one day on weekly basis because when offices and schools will remain close on one day, associated expenses will not occur like electricity, fuel etc. On the other hand it will increase workload on other days.

    Administrative expenses are the biggest issue for underdeveloped countries and its a good move by Sudanese government to cut off such expenses by adopting 2-day weekend. Alternatively government can reduce working hours. Efficient use of resources will be helpful to reduce the government expenditure. cv help Thanks
