The Djibouti Presidency has once again issued a decree making the date of the upcoming investiture of recently re-elected President Ismail Omar Guelleh, Sunday, May 8, 2016, a one-off non-working public holiday in Djibouti ("A l'occasion de l'Investiture du Président de la République, Son Excellence Monsieur Ismaïl Omar Guelleh, la journée du Dimanche 08 mai 2016 est déclarée journée fériée, chômée et payée").
The aforementioned declaration of Sunday, May 8, 2016, the date of the upcoming investiture of recently re-elected President Ismail Omar Guelleh, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Djibouti, thus amends the previously-released (2016-02-15) list of non-working public holidays, and their duration, for the calendar year 2016 in Djibouti.
On the occasion of the 2 preceding inaugurations of the same President Ismail Omar Guelleh, the government of Djibouti had similarly declared Saturday, May 7, 2005, and Sunday, May 8, 2011, as a one-off public holiday to coincide with that investiture (2011-05-05 and 2005-05-05). Sundays are working days in Djibouti.
