As of yet, there has not been any announcement of a one-off electoral public holiday on Tuesday, September 1, 2009, on the date of the upcoming presidential election.

However, following last week's nomination for a second term of Vanuatu's outgoing President Kalkot Mataskelekele, we expect him (or rather Vanuatu's Principal Electoral Officer, Martin Tete) to declare election day a public holiday as was done last year for the legislative elections (2008-09-01).
