Zambian President, Edgar Lungu, has declared Thursday, July 26, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in the Zambia on account of the upcoming elections.

The most recent general elections and referenda were also declared as one-off non-working public holidays in the Zambia (09-Sep-2016, 09-Aug-2016, 18-Jul-2016, 04-Jan-2016, 19-Oct-2015, 13-Jan-2015, 07-Jan-2015), since the passage of the new Zambian constitution which specified, in its Article 82, that "a general election shall be held, every five years after the last general election, on the second Thursday of August" [sic] and that "The day on which an election is held shall be a public holiday" (01-May-2012).

Before that, although election day was not always an automatic public holiday in Zambia, the government of Zambia often declared a one-off public holiday for many prior elections (15-Sep-2011, 28-Jul-2011, 07-Feb-2010, 14-Dec-2008, 23-Oct-2008, 10-Sep-2008, 27-Sep-2006 and 26-Aug-2008).
