Kenya‘s election commission has set Tuesday, October 17, 2017, as the date for the general elections re-vote ordered by the Supreme Court when it annulled the August 8, 2017, poll won by President Uhuru Kenyatta.

Tuesday, August 8, 2017, the date of the initial general elections had been declared a public holiday in Kenya (2017-08-01), as was Monday, March 4, 2013, the date of the previous general elections in Kenya (2013-02-26), and we expect October 17 to be similarly declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Kenya..

Note that the Assumption of Office of The President Bill constitutional bill (2012-08-02), mandates that an official non-working public holiday be declared in Kenya on the day of a presidential inauguration (2013-02-03 and 2012-06-08).
