Tajikistan's lower chamber of parliament (the Majlisi Namoyandagon) is considering a bill which would amend the law "On Public Holidays of the Republic of Tajikistan", creating a new annual non-working public holiday in Tajikistan, to mark the presidency of Tajikistan's longtime ruler Emomali Rakhmon.
The proposed amendment does not specify when this new annual non-working public holiday in Tajikistan, to mark the presidency of Tajikistan's longtime ruler Emomali Rakhmon, would be observed, but it would be called either President's Day or the Day of the Leader of the Nation.
A similar annual non-working public holiday was declared in neighboring Kazakhstan five years ago (2011-12-15 and 2011-12-11), when Kazakhstan adopted an amendment to the Kazakh law On holidays in the Republic of Kazakhstan to establish a new annual state non-working public holiday in Kazakhstan, the Day of the First President of Kazakhstan, on December 1st.
