Malaysian Public Holiday September 4
 
(Posted on Thursday, August 31, 2017)

Source: Bernama News Agency (Kuala Lumpur)

Malaysia's Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, has announced that the government of Malaysia had decided to declare Monday, September 4, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia "following Malaysia's outstanding performance at the 29th SEA Games".

The aforementioned announcement that the government of Malaysia had decided to declare Monday, September 4, 2017, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia, thus further amends (22-Aug-2017, 13-Jul-2017, 29-Apr-2017, 03-Apr-2017 and 18-Jan-2017) the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2016" (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2017), released last summer (22-Jul-2016).

Individual Malaysian states often declare one-off non-working public holidays on account of football and sport victories (15-Feb-2017, 31-Oct-2016, 24-Sep-2016, 14-May-2016, 12-Dec-2015, 12-Dec-2015, 31-Oct-2015, 19-May-2015, 02-Nov-2014, 01-Nov-2013, 30-Oct-2013, 13-Jun-2013, 15-Oct-2012, 18-Jul-2012, 14-May-2012, 21-Nov-2011, 13-Jun-2011, 11-Jun-2011, 30-Dec-2010, 29-Dec-2010, 30-Oct-2010, 04-Nov-2009,...), in particular the Malaysian states of Kedah, Kelantan, Terengganu, and Johor (23-Nov-2013), where the day after most important matches, Sunday, is a regular working day, but the declaration of a nationwide one-off public holiday in Malaysia, due to a sports event, is much rarer.

Technically, the above announcement that Monday, September 4, 2017, had been declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia "following Malaysia's outstanding performance at the 29th SEA Games", is limited to Peninsula Malaysia and the Federal Territory of Labuan; the Malaysian States of Sabah and Sarawak will need to make separate announcements, as they did in the past (05-Apr-2017, 04-Apr-2017, 03-Apr-2017, 07-Mar-2012 and 16-Mar-2012), and will, no doubt, also do this time.
