As per the statement, Monday, March 6, 2006, will be a public holiday throughout Uganda to enable people participate in the Local Council-3 elections, while Wednesday, March 8, will be the annual public holiday for International Women's Day. Finally, Friday, March 10, 2006, will be another one-off public holiday, also designated for local council elections.
