The Nitijela of the Republic of the Marshall Islands (the Parliament of the Marshall Islands) has passed the Nitijela Bill No: 63 (aka. "Public Holiday (Amendment) Act, 2015") which amends the current public holidays legislation for the Republic of the Marshall Islands (the "Public Holiday Act of 1988").
The aforementioned "Public Holiday (Amendment) Act, 2015", voted, pursuant to Section 902 of the Principal Act, amends the Marshall Islands "Public Holiday Act of 1988" to include as a non-working public holiday in the Marshall Islands, the General Election Day, "which shall in accordance with the Constitution, fall on the third Monday of November of the election year.".
The immediate effect of the "Public Holiday (Amendment) Act, 2015" is to modify the annual list of official non-working public holidays in the Marshall Islands for the calendar year 2015, as released by the government of the Marshall Islands, earlier this month (2015-01-12).
