Mozambique's Minister of Labour, has finally announced that Wednesday, October 15, 2014, had been declared as a one-off sectorial optional public holiday on the occasion of that day's 5th General Elections of Mozambique (Tolerância de Ponto para todos os trabalhadores, funcionários públicos e agentes do Estado de todo o país, durante todo o dia 15 de Outubro de 2014, quarta-Feira próxima).
A year ago (01-Aug-2013), Mozambican President, Armando Guebuza, had announced that the upcoming and presidential elections would be held on Wednesday, October 15, 2014. At that time, based on experience, we had forecast that the date would be declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Mozambique.
The declaration of one-off non-working public holidays is a relatively common feature of Mozambique's official public holidays calendar (01-Oct-2014, 21-Dec-2012, 05-Dec-2011, 16-Oct-2011, 29-Dec-2010, 23-Dec-2010,...), in particular for elections and inaugurations (11-Jan-2010, 26-Oct-2009 and 17-Nov-2008).
