Public Holiday in Indonesia in 2020

A national public holiday will be observed on December 9th 2020 to allow voters to participate in the nationwide regional elections taking place across Indonesia.

Extent of regional elections

On December 9th, Indonesia is set to hold simultaneous regional elections in which nine provinces, 37 cities, and 224 regencies will be going to the polls. Like in previous years, even though not all of Indonesia will be voting, a national holiday will be mandated for the whole country.

"The day of the election will be, as mandated by law, a holiday, like in the 2015, 2017, 2018 regional elections," General Election Commission (KPU) Commissioner Hasyim Asy’ari said in a virtual meeting with the House of Representatives (DPR) yesterday.
