Indonesian State Palace Spokesman, Johan Budi, has announced that the Government of Indonesia had finally decided to declare June 1st as a new, "Pancasila Day", non-working public holiday in Indonesia, but only from next year.

Late last week (2016-05-26), the Secretary of the Cabinet of Indonesia's Government, Pramono Anung, had announced that a bill was being finalized, to be signed by the president, which would declare June 1, Pancasila Day, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Indonesia, to commemorate the birth of Pancasila.

The aforementioned declaration of Pancasila Day, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Indonesia, on June 1st, beginning in 2017, thus amends the previously-released (2016-04-14 and 2016-02-22) list of 2017 public holidays in Indonesia contained in the annual decree ("Surat Keputusan Bersama (SKB) Hari Libur Nasional dan Cuti Bersama Tahun 2017") designating the list of Indonesian public holidays and collective leave days ("cuti bersama") for the calendar year 2017, for both the private and public sectors.

will make it the first new annual non-working public holiday added to the list of Indonesia's public holidays since 2013, when the May 1st, Labour Day, annual non-working public holiday was made an annual non-working public holiday in Indonesia, following a lengthy and tumultuous path (2013-08-14, 2013-05-01, 2012-04-30, 2012-05-26, and 2009-04-30).
