On the eve of this year's International Labour Day, Indonesia's Home Minister, Gamawan Fauzi, has announced that the Indonesian government was deliberating whether to add May 1st as a new annual non-working public holiday (Hari Libur Nasional) in Indonesia.
As per the aforementioned statement, "The President has heard the proposal and he has asked us to conduct a feasibility study", meaning that the change, were it to come, would take effect in 2013 at the earliest.
The annual non-working public holidays and joint days of leave (Hari Libur Nasional dan Cuti Bersama) for the upcoming calendar year are usually announced in the early summer (2011-07-14, 2010-06-15, 2009-08-09, 2008-06-10, and 2007-05-31).
Note that the idea of adding May 1st to the list of Indonesian non-working public holidays had already been discussed a few years ago (2009-04-30), but that nothing came of it back then.
