Lower Saxony's Prime Minister, Stephan Weil (SPD), has announced that he would support the declaration of Reformation Day as an annual non-working public holiday in the German State of Lower Saxony, if he wins the upcoming, October 15, regional public holidays.

Following a few of years of piecemeal declaration of October 31, 2017, as a one-off public holiday, by each German Land (08-Oct-2015, 16-Sep-2014, 12-Dec-2013, 13-Aug-2013, 04-Jun-2013, 17-May-2013, 15-May-2013, 01-May-2013, 14-Mar-2013, 08-Mar-2013, 25-Jan-2013, 10-Jan-2013), the list of 2017 bank holidays in Germany (04-Sep-2016), includes a one-off national public holiday for Reformation Day, on October 31, 2017.

Then, at the beginning of the current year (25-Jan-2017), the Minister of Economics (Ministerprδsident) of Germany's state of Schleswig-Holstein, Reinhard Meyer, had similarly announced that he was in favour of adding Reformation Day as a new annual non-working public holiday in the German state of Schleswig-Holstein.

Since then, the German State of Bremen has been moving towards the declaration of October 31st as a new annual non-working public holiday in the German State of Bremen (27-Mar-2017 and 18-Feb-2017), as its 2 major parties, the CDU and SPD, are in advanced discussions on the matter, and the majority of the SPD voted in favor of the motion at its last regional party convention, a position also supported by their Green coalition partner.
