Maldives government has declared a public holiday to allow people to vote in the presidential elections.

Sunday April 21st 2024

President Dr Mohamed Muizzu has declared Sunday, April 21st and Monday, April 22nd as public holidays in light of the Parliamentary Elections scheduled to be held then.

In a statement released by the President's Office, they stated that the President had made the decision based on a request from the Elections Commission asking that the polling day be declared a public holiday due to the significant involvement of government employees and the public in various election-related activities.

Elections Commission also requested that the following day also be declared a public holiday to facilitate follow up work such as vote counting, result announcements, and other election-related activities.

The Parliamentary Elections were previously scheduled to be held on the 17th of March. However, it was later rescheduled to be held on April 21st after the President ratified the bill passed twice by Parliament with amendments to the General Elections Act which prohibits elections from being held within Ramadan.

Sunday April 7th 2019
