The Secretary of the Cabinet of Indonesia's Government, Pramono Anung, has announced that a bill is currently 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, in a presidential decree drafted by President Joko Widodo and Vice President Jusuf Kalla.

If the aforementioned possible declaration of Pancasila Day, as a new annual non-working public holiday in Indonesia, on June 1st, comes to pass, then it would be 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).
