The Cayman Islands' Legislative Assembly has approved by a vote of 8-3 the legislation enshrining the recently-announced one-off referendum public holiday on Wednesday, July 18, 2012.

The passage of the aforementioned "Referendum [Single Member Constituencies] Bill, 2012" follows last week's announcement (2012-05-08) by Cayman Islands Premier, McKeeva Bush, that the date of the upcoming "one man one vote" referendum would in fact be a non-working public holiday in the Cayman Islands, despite earlier contradictory announcements (2012-02-27 and 2012-04-13).

Recall that the Public Holidays Law (2007 Revision) states that public holidays shall include "the day appointed under the Elections Law for the taking of the poll at a general election in the Islands" (2007-06-19).
