Indonesia's Deputy Cabinet Secretary, Erman Rajaguguk, that, to date, there is no presidential decree or any kind of presidential decision setting the date of Chinese New Year 2002 as a national public holiday.

Early this year (2001-01-19), Indonesia's President, Abdurrahman Wahid, agreed to declare Chinese New Year (locally know as Imlek) to become a public holiday, but only for the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, not a full national public holiday.
