Vanuatu's president, Baldwin Lonsdale, has declared tomorrow, Thursday, October 15, 2015, as a one-off regional non-working public holiday in Vanuatu's capital, Port Vila, on account of the by-election being held on that date to fill the seat left vacant by the death of former prime minister Edward Natapei.
In the past, Vanuatu election days have often been declared official non-working public holidays, as was done for regional elections (06-Jan-2014, 30-May-2013, 23-May-2012 and 19-Apr-2010), presidential elections (28-Aug-2009) and legislative elections (01-Sep-2008).
The aforementioned announcement of a regional non-working public holiday in Vanuatu's capital, Port Vila, is in addition to the annual list of official non-working public holidays in Vanuatu for the calendar year 2015, as announced by the government of Vanuatu late last year (22-Dec-2014).
