The State Secretary of the government of Malaysia's State of Kelantan, Zainuddin Ibrahim, has announced that the Kelantan state government had also declared an additional non-working state public holiday on September 1st, 2011, in conjunction with the double celebration of the upcoming annual public holidays for Hari Raya Aidilfitri and National Day.
The aforementioned declaration was enshrined during the 14/2011 State Executive Council that met last month.
It mirrors last month's announcement (2011-07-24) by the State of Sarawak that the Sarawak State government had decided to declare an additional public holiday for the upcoming Hari Raya Aidilfitri celebration, an announcement which was followed on August 5th, 2011, by its inclusion in the Sarawak Government Gazette (Part II) under the Public Ordinance and Notification under Section 5.
Earlier this spring (2011-05-24), the Chief Secretary to the federal government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, has announced that the Malaysian federal government had decided to decide to declare an additional one-off public holiday in September 2011 to compensate the fact that the upcoming Aidilfitri (End of Ramadan) public holiday falls on the same date as the annual National Day public holiday.
