Posted: Friday, April 8, 2022

The government of Timor Leste has announced that it had decided to grant 2 full-day and 2 half day public sector holidays in Timor Leste on April 14, 18, 19 and 20, "on the occasion of Holy Thursday and the second vote for the election of the President of the Republic".

The aforementioned announcement ("Tolerância de Ponto por ocasião da Quinta-Feira Santa e da segunda votação para a eleição do Presidente da República") thus amends the list of 2022 public holidays in Timor Leste, as announced earlier this year (2022-01-17).

Earlier this year (2022-01-26), the government of Timor Leste had released the calendar for the 2022 Presidential election, and though Law No.10/2005, which overhauled Timor Leste's public holidays (2005-08-12), does not specify that the dates of elections should be public holidays, recent presidential elections were public holidays in Timor Leste (2022-03-17, 2017-07-18, 2017-03-14, 2012-04-11 and 2012-03-15), as were parliamentary elections (2012-07-07 and 2012-07-03), with some exceptions (2007-02-04).
