What this likely means is that, in addition to the public holidays to be observed on May 25 and October 12, 2007, government services and agencies can be assumed to be functioning on a public holiday schedule, on both May 24 and October 9, 2007.
For 2007 public holidays, this was specified in the executive decree 2369 of January 12, 2007, later amended concerning the recuperation days for Carnival (many web sites, such as link, still show the wrong recuperation dates).

Ecuador at AllExperts (3116 words)
Ecuador, officially the Republic of Ecuador (Spanish: Ecuador or República del Ecuador, IPA) is a country in northwestern South America, bounded by Colombia on the north, by Peru on the east and south, and by the Pacific Ocean on the west.
Ecuador's mainstream culture is defined by Ecuador's mestizo majority and, like their ancestry, is a mixture of European and Amerindian influences infused with African elements inherited from slave ancestors.
Ecuador's indigenous communities are largely integrated into that mainstream culture to varying degrees, but some may also practise their own autochthonous cultures, particularly the more remote indigenous communities of the Amazon basin.
