The Chief Minister of the Government of Malaysia's state of Terengganu, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, has announced that Sunday, July 22, 2012, would be a one-off non-working public holiday throughout Terengganu State.
Sports-related state public holidays are not uncommon in Malaysia (2012-05-14, 2011-11-21, 2011-06-13, 2011-06-11, 2010-12-30, 2010-12-29, 2010-10-30, 2009-11-04,...).
The reason for the need to declare a Sunday, non-working, public holiday, is that in 3 of Malaysia's States (Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu), the weekly day of rest is Friday, and that, as such, Sundays are normally regular working days (2005-06-21).
