Malawi's Secretary to the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Kester Kaphaizi, has announced that the government of Malawi had not declared Tuesday, May 20, 2014, as another one-off non-working public holiday in Malawi, despite it being Election Day.

Five years ago (2009-05-17), Malawi's then Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Patrick Kabambe, had announced that the government of Malawi had declared Tuesday, May 19, 2009, a public holiday on the occasion of that year's Parliamentary and Presidential Elections.

At the time, the Minister had point out that May 19 would only be a public holiday this year, on account of the elections, after earlier being forced to deny earlier rumours that May 18 would be declared a public holiday (2009-05-17).
