The President of Tunisia's unicameral parliament (l'Assemblée des Représentants du Peuple, aka ARP), Mohamed Ennaceur, has announced that a national day, possibly a one-off non-working public holiday in Tunisia, would be organized to celebrate last Friday's winning of the 2015 Nobel Peace Prize by a quartet of 4 Tunisian organizations.

If the national day of the aforementioned announcement is in fact declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Tunisia, then it would be in addition to the government-released (2014-12-08) list of official public holidays in Tunisia for the calendar year 2015, as well as the "Arrêté N°317 du 26 mars 2011", following the various changes announced since the beginning of the Arab revolutions (2011-04-04, 2011-03-18, and 2011-08-23).
