The Minister of Public Service of Uganda has announced that the government of Uganda had declared Tuesday, July 10, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday throughout Uganda ("The Honourable Minister of the Public Service informs the general public that Tuesday 10th July 2018 will be observed as public holiday throughout Uganda to enable all Ugandans to participate in the local council 1 elections to be conducted by Electoral Commission’’").

Last month (2018-06-19) we had reported that the Electoral Commission of Uganda 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".

One-off, election-related public holidays are relatively common in Uganda (2016-05-09, 2016-02-23, 2016-02-10, 2011-05-09, 2011-03-11, 2011-03-07, 2011-02-21, and 2011-02-15).
