The Government of Singapore has issued a communiqué announcing that Saturday, May 7, 2016, the date of the upcoming Bukit Bato by-election would not be gazetted as another one-off non-working public holiday in Singapore.

Five years ago (2011-04-19), the Government of Singapore had declared Saturday, May 7, 2011, as a one-off public holiday on account of that date's general elections, while the Singapore Ministry of Education (MOE) had announced that the following Monday, May 9, 2011, would be a school holiday for all teaching staff and pupils throughout Singapore.

However, more recently (2012-05-10), the Government of Singapore announced that May 26, 2012, the date of that year's Hougang by-election would not be another one-off non-working public holiday in Singapore.
