The Government of Singapore has announced that, in all likelihood, it will declare Saturday, September 23, 2017, as another one-off public holiday on account of the Presidential Election that will be held on that day.
As was the case 6 years ago, when the Government of Singapore declared Saturday, August 27, 2011, as a one-off public holiday on account of that year's Presidential Election (03-Aug-2011), technically, Saturday, September 23, 2017, will only be declared a one-off public holiday in Singapore if more than one candidate is nominated for the aforementioned election on Nomination Day, September 13, 2017. However, as of today, 3 candidates are announced and it seems unlikely that 2 of the 3 would be disqualified by the Singapore Elections Department.
The Government of Singapore usually also declares one-off public holidays in Singapore on the dates of general elections (25-Aug-2015 and 19-Apr-2011), but not for by-elections (21-Apr-2016 and 10-May-2012).
