The Government of Fiji has issued a reminder of the previously-announced Wednesday, September 17, 2014, additional one-off non-working public holiday in Fiji on account of the upcoming general election, and of the details of its observance.

Earlier this past spring (2014-03-28), Fiji's Attorney General and Minister Responsible for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, had announced that the next general election would be on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, and that the date had been declared as an additional one-off non-working public holiday in Fiji. This additional, one-off non-working public holiday in Fiji on Wednesday, September 17, 2014, was gazetted the following month (2014-04-24).

Last month (2014-08-12), the Government of Fiji then clarified the scope of the previously-announced Wednesday, September 17, 2014, additional one-off non-working public holiday in Fiji on account of the upcoming general election.

Late last year (2013-12-06), Fiji's Attorney General and Minister for Elections, Aiyaz Sayed-Khaiyum, had announced that the Government of Fiji was considering declaring a one-off non-working paid public holiday in Fiji, on the date of next year's elections, in addition to the previously announced (2013-06-20) list of annual non-working public holidays in Fiji for the calendar year 2014.
