Four years ago (2013-11-19), the government of Honduras has announced that the Council of Ministers had approved a one-off non-working public sector holiday on Monday, November 25, 2013, on the day following the upcoming elections.
On the occasion of the preceding elections in Honduras (2009-11-25 and 2009-11-27), following petitions to Honduras' Secretaría de Gobernación y Justicia, the Honduran government, led by Roberto Micheletti in a council of Ministers, declared a public sector holiday for Friday afternoon, November 27, 2009, starting at noon local time, as well as the entire day of Monday, November 30, 2009, to enable people who had to go back to their village to vote on Sunday, to return to the cities and resume work on Tuesday morning ("para que puedan viajar a sus ciudades el domingo 24 y así ejercer el sufragio").
