Egyptian Prime Minister, Ibrahim Mehleb, has announced that the Egyptian Cabinet had declared, Sunday, June 8, 2014, as another one-off non-working public holiday in Egypt on account of the inauguration of president-elect Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi.
Last month (2014-05-26) Egyptian Prime Minister, Ibrahim Mehleb, had announced that Egyptian authorities had declared, Tuesday, May 27, 2014, as a one-off additional electoral non-working public holiday in Egypt on account of the second day of voting in the current Egyptian presidential elections. Egyptian authorities later extended the voting to a third day, but Egypt's cabinet issued a statement clarifying that Wednesday, May 28, 2014, had not been declared another one-off additional electoral non-working public holiday in Egypt, and would be a normal working day (2014-05-27).
On the occasion of the previous presidential election (2012-06-13), then Egyptian Prime Minister, Kamal al-Ganzouri, had declared non-working public sector holidays on June 16 and 17, 2012, on account of the upcoming second round of the presidential election, and the month before (2012-05-22), Egypt's Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) had similarly announced that the date of the first round of the presidential election, Thursday, May 24, 2012, would be a non-working public holiday in Egypt.
