Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) has announced that the date of the upcoming presidential election, Thursday, May 24, 2012, would be a non-working public holiday in Egypt.
The aforementioned declaration of Thursday, May 24, 2012, would be a non-working public holiday in Egypt, echoes last year's (2011-03-13) announcement by Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) that Saturday, March 19, 2011, the date of then upcoming referendum on constitutional amendments, would be an official public holiday.
Once again, although the aforementioned announcement specifies that the March 19 public holiday will apply to "all state institutions, universities and schools", we expect it to be observed by the private sector as well.
