The President of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, has issued a proclamation declaring Sunday, July 26, 2015, as a national non-working public holiday in Liberia to be observed across the country on account of Liberia's 168th Independence Day.

As per Liberian law (the "Patriotic Observances Law", Title 26, Liberian Code of Laws of 1956), fixed-date public holidays that fall on a Sunday are not meant to be compensated by a day in lieu public holiday on the following Monday.

However, in the past, this has often been done on an ad hoc basis, often at the last minute (2015-03-14, 2014-08-22, 2012-03-12, 2009-03-14 and 2008-08-23), and the aforementioned proclamation goes on to state that "since the Day falls on Sunday, it will be commemorated on Monday, July 27, 2015.".
