Earlier today, Singapore's President, Tony Tan Keng Yam, on the advice of Singapore Prime Minister, Lee Hsien Loong, dissolved Singapore's 12th Parliament, and announced that Polling Day would be on Friday, September 11, 2015, and that the date would be another one-off non-working public holiday in Singapore.
The aforementioned declaration of a public holiday in Singapore ("In accordance with Section 35 of the Parliamentary Elections Act, Polling Day, 11 September 2015 is a public holiday") on Friday, September 11, 2015, will be in addition to the official list of annual non-working public holidays in Singapore for the calendar year 2015, as announced last year (08-Apr-2014), and already amended once, earlier this year (14-Mar-2015).
As per Singapore's election law, elections must take place on a public holiday, but in the past (03-Aug-2011 and 19-Apr-2011), they were often set on a weekend, to avoid having to declare a one-off non-working public holiday in Singapore.
