The Government of Botswana has published the Statutory Instrument No. 117 & 118 of 2014 in the Government Gazette of October 13, 2014, thus making the previously announced Friday, October 24, 2014, one-off non-working public holiday in Botswana, official.

After a lot of discussion and the repeated calls to make election day a public holiday, by both the opposition and the governing parties, as well as the Independent Electoral Commission (IEC) (20-Jul-2007, 22-Aug-2008, 27-Nov-2008, 26-Jan-2009, and 14-Mar-2009), the date of the last General Elections was also declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Botswana, and the president of Botswana, Ian Khama, in his statement at the final session of the 10th Parliament (07-Aug-2014), announced that the date of the upcoming General Election would be Friday, October 24, 2014, and that this date would once again be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Botswana.

The aforementioned declaration of Friday, October 24, 2014, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Botswana, is in addition to the list of official non-working public holidays in Botswana for the upcoming calendar year 2014, as released, earlier this year (01-Jan-2014), by the government of Botswana.
