April 21, 22 declared as public holidays

President Dr. Mohamed Muizzu has declared Sunday, April 21, 2024, and Monday, April 22, 2024, government holidays for two days. The President declared the two days government holidays, as Sunday, April 21, is the polling day for the Parliamentary Elections 2024.

The Election Commission of the Maldives (ECM) requested that the polling day be declared a government holiday due to the significant involvement of government employees and the general public in various election-related activities.

The ECM also requested that Monday, April 22, be designated as a government holiday due to numerous significant tasks such as vote counting, result announcements, and other election-related activities.
