The Government of Liberia, has announced that Tuesday, August 23, 2011, would be a one-off non-working public holiday to be observed throughout the territorial confines of the Republic, on account of the National Constitutional Referendum to be held on that date.

The announcement, which had been widely expected based on previous electoral public holidays (2009-11-23 and 2009-11-09), was still not official last month (2011-07-18) when President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf issued a proclamation declaring Tuesday, July 26, 2011, as a non-working public holiday.

Note that, August 24, the day after the upcoming referendum, is an the annual public holiday marking Liberia's Flag Day.
