The Namibian Ministry of Information and Communication Technology has announced that President Hage Geingob had declared Wednesday, November 27, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Namibia, on account of the Presidential and National Assembly elections being held in Namibia on that date ("the ministry urges all Namibians to make use of the opportunity and exercise their democratic rights on this day and choose the leaders who will take office for the next five years").

In past elections, the decision to declare, or not, the date of an election in Namibia as a one-off non-working public holiday in Namibia, has always been confused until the last minute (2014-10-17, 2009-11-13, 2009-10-21, and 2009-09-12), most particularly, five years ago (2015-11-24) when Presidency spokesperson, Albertus Auchamub, had to specially announce that, despite announcements to the contrary, President, Hage Geingob, had indeed declared Friday, November 27, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Namibia, on account of the local and regional authority elections being held in Namibia on that date.

The aforementioned declaration of Wednesday, November 27, 2019, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Namibia, is in addition to the official list of 2019 public holidays in Namibia, as announced, late last year, by the Namibian Ministry of Information and Communication Technology (2018-11-11).
