Most recent follow-up news item: April 8, 2022

The government of Timor Leste has released the calendar for the upcoming 2022 Presidential election in Timor-Leste, with the first round scheduled for March 19, 2022, the second round for April 19, 2022, and one or both dates expected to be declared as one-off public holidays in East Timor.

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 and, indeed, not all past presidential elections were declared a public holiday in Timor Leste (2007-02-04).

However, in general, recent presidential elections were public holidays in Timor Leste (2017-07-18, 2017-03-14, 2012-04-11 and 2012-03-15) as were parliamentary elections (2012-07-07 and 2012-07-03).
