je poserai autant de vacances que je le pourrai

Why is there a direct object pronoun in this sentence, "je poserai autant de vacances que je le pourrai"? What does "le" refer to here? Can you say, "je poserai autant de vacances que je pourrai"?

poser des vacances -- to take vacation time (off work)

The le is an idiosyncrasy of French. It refers back to poserai autant des vacances. In French you need to specify what it is that you can do.
