The next presidential election will occur on December 19, 2007. This will be a partial public holiday.

Government offices will be closed, and most businesses will either close, or will give 2-3 hours to their employees to go and vote.

However, contrary to what happened last time (2004-03-16), this will not be a nationwide compulsory public holiday.
