Senegal's Minister of the Interior, Abdoulaye Daouda Diallo, has promised that the recently-passed law declaring the Magal de Touba as a new annual non-working public holiday in Senegal, would be gazetted in time for the upcoming Magal de Touba, which is set to occur next weekend.

A couple of weeks ago (01-Dec-2013 and 26-Nov-2013), Senegal's parliament unanimously approved the bill ("Projet de loi n°10/2013 complétant et modifiant certaines dispositions de la loi n° 74-52 du 04 novembre 1974 relative à la fête nationale et aux fêtes légales, modifiée") which makes the Magal de Touba a new official annual non-working public holiday in Senegal.

Last October (29-Oct-2013), the Prime Minister of Senegal, Aminata Touré, and her government finally drafted legislation declaring the Magal de Touba as an annual non-working public holiday in Senegal.

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").
