Timor Leste Public Holidays March 20-21
 
(Posted on Tuesday, March 14, 2017)

Source: Press Release Government Of Timor-Leste (Dili)

The government of Timor Leste announced that it had once again decided to grant additional day-off public sector holidays in Timor Leste ("Tolerαnsia pontu iha loron 20 no 21 fulan-marsu tinan 2017") on March 20-12, 2017, due to the upcoming first round of the Presidential Election.

As usual, the Secretariat of State of the Council of Ministers of Timor Leste, states that its decision is based on law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (12-Aug-2005) and with Article 63 of the Constitution of the Democratic Republic of Timor-Leste establishing the citizens' political participation. However, the text of the law No.10/2005 does not specify that the dates of elections should be public holidays and, indeed, the date of the second to last presidential election in Timor Leste was not a public holiday (04-Feb-2007), though both rounds of the most recent presidential election in Timor Leste were public holidays (11-Apr-2012 and 15-Mar-2012) as were the parliamentary elections (07-Jul-2012 and 03-Jul-2012).
