Taiwan's Ministry of Labor (MOL) has declared Saturday, January 11, 2020, as a one-off non-working Taiwanese public holiday, on account of Taiwan's presidential and legislative elections, being held on that date.
As per the statement by the Taiwanese Ministry of Labor, "Workers who are eligible to vote but are scheduled to work on this day should get a paid day off, but those who choose to work on this day should get premium pay for the hours he or she works".
The aforementioned declaration of Saturday, January 11, 2020, as a one-off non-working Taiwanese public holiday, thus amends the list of Taiwan's 2020 public holidays, as released (2019-05-01) and later confirmed (2019-10-31), by the Directorate General of Personnel Administration.
For the past decade, the Taiwanese presidential and legislative elections are held on the same date, following a meeting of minds between the ruling Democratic Progressive Party and the opposition Kuomintang Party, on a two-in-one election (2006-12-28).
