The Social Democrat’s party secretary Carin Jämtin, on Saturday retracted her earlier statements about reviewing Swedish public holidays and include some Muslim holidays in the calendar, Swedish Radio News reports.

In a newspaper interview published last month Jämtin has suggested making the Muslim holiday Eid, a three day holiday which marks the end of Ramadan, a public holiday in Sweden.

But now Jämtin seems to have changed her mind.

“We don’t want any more public holidays and that is why we won’t make Eid into a holiday,” she told Swedish Radio News.
