The Prime Minister of Senegal, Aminata Touré, has announced that her government had finally drafted legislation declaring the Magal de Touba as an annual non-working public holiday in Senegal.

The Magal de Touba in Senegal, as a non-working public holiday, has a long and eventful history.

After years of hesitation (09-Mar-2007, 26-Nov-2009, 22-Jan-2011, and 26-Oct-2011), the Magal de Touba was declared a one-off public holiday in Senegal for the first time in 2012, albeit after a lot of last-minute delays (15-Nov-2011, 17-Dec-2011, and 11-Jan-2012). After similar delays, for 2013, the Magal de Touba was once again declared a one-off public holiday in Senegal (02-Nov-2012 and 07-Dec-2012).

Then, after the elections (07-Dec-2012), the Senegalese Cabinet of Ministers approved a decree declaring Tuesday, January 1st, 2013, the date of the first Magal de Touba of 2013, as a non-working public holiday throughout Sénégal ("déclaré férié, chômé et payé, la journée célébrant le Grand Magal de Touba édition 2013").
