The President of the Republic of Liberia, Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf, has issued a Proclamation declaring Tuesday, December 26, 2017, as a non-working public holiday to be observed throughout the Republic as a national holiday on the date when Liberia votes for the second time, in a run-off election, to elect President Sirleaf's successor and 73 members of a new National Assembly.

The declaration of one-off non-working public holidays in Liberia on account of election-related events has occurred regularly over the past years (2017-10-06, 2014-12-15, 2012-04-23, 2012-01-13, 2011-10-06, 2011-08-09, 2011-01-28, 2009-11-23, 2009-11-09, 2009-04-08, and 2005-10-07), this one in particular being due to the judgment of December 7, 2017, of Liberia's Supreme Court, ordering the National Elections Commission to conduct Presidential Runoff Elections on Tuesday, December 26, 2017.
