The Guatemalan government has declared Monday, October 26, 2015, as a one-off non-working public sector holiday in Guatemala on account of the upcoming presidential elections.

Note that voting is actually on Sunday, October 25, 2015, but as is common in Latin America, voters need to go back to their home villages to vote and a non-working public holidays is often given on the day following elections to give voters time to return to their place of employment.

A few years ago (02-Nov-2011 and 07-Sep-2011), Guatemalan President, Álvaro Colom Caballeros, had declared Monday, September 12, 2011, and Monday, November 7, 2011, as a one-off non-working public sector holidays in Guatemala on account of the first round and second rounds of that year's presidential election.
