National Assembly Administrative Safety Committee is scheduled to hold a public hearing on public holidays in the morning and a subcommittee for bill review in the afternoon to discuss the alternative holiday system bill.

According to an opinion poll conducted last week by Seo Young-kyo, chair of the Administration and Safety Committee belonging to the Democratic Party, 72.5 percent of the people supported the introduction of an alternative holiday, showing that the public's consensus was also high.
