The Mongolian General Election Committee has announced that Friday, July 7, 2017, the date of the upcoming second round of the Mongolian presidential election, would be another one-off electoral non-working public holiday in Mongolia.
The declaration of one-off electoral public holidays in Mongolia was rare (2011-12-20), but becoming more common. Past parliamentary elections (2012-12-23 and 2012-06-26), local administrative elections (2016-10-05 and 2012-11-16), and presidential elections (2013-06-11), were all declared as one-off electoral non-working public holidays in Mongolia.
Work on a revised law on public holidays in Mongolia, to cater to such special cases as the one announced today, has been crawling along in parliament for a almost a decade (2010-01-01, 2009-04-07 and 2009-01-20).
