The Jakarta administration will declare Wednesday, August 8, 2007, a public holiday in the municipal area of Jakarta, in order to encourage Jakartans to vote in city's first ever direct gubernatorial election.
This public holiday will be mandated for all offices, including private companies, operating in Jakarta.
This follows a tradition whereby, in Indonesia, the date of elections is usually declared a public holiday (2004-03-30 and 1999-05-29).
