The government of Israel has announced that Tuesday, February 10, 2009, had been announced as a public holiday to coincide with that day's general elections.
This declaration of an election day public holiday, which is usually a formality, was this time not taken for granted as there were multiple reports in past months of moves to stop the practice (2009-01-12, 2008-12-19, and 2008-11-16).
