The Electoral Commission of Uganda has announced that it would request that the government of Uganda declare Tuesday, July 10, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Uganda, "to enable the successful organisation of the Local Council one elections".
Recall that, 2 years ago (09-May-2016, 23-Feb-2016 and 10-Feb-2016), the government of Uganda had declared non-working public holidays in Uganda, on account of the election of Local Government Leaders, the presidential poll, and the swearing-in ceremony for President Yoweri Museveni.
One-off, election-related public holidays are relatively common in Uganda (09-May-2011, 11-Mar-2011, 07-Mar-2011, 21-Feb-2011, and 15-Feb-2011).
