Malaysia's Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS) secretary-general, Datuk Radin Malleh, has announced that the state government would decide whether or not to shift the state public holiday for the Head of State's (TYT) official birthday from September 16, to another date.

The comment came as September 16th has traditionally been the state public holiday in Malaysia's Sabah state, but the date has recently (2009-10-19) been declared a national public holiday, Malaysia Day, beginning in 2010.
