The Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia's state of Sarawak, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, has announced that as per a statement from the Sarawak Chief Minister's Department, the state government of Sarawak had decided to also declare Wednesday, April 11, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming installation of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah (Malaysia's King).
Last month (2012-02-24), the Malaysian Federal Government had announced that Wednesday, April 11, 2012, had been declared as a one-off non-working national public holiday throughout Malaysia on the day when the Sultan of Kedah, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, will be installed as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King of Malaysia).
However due to the peculiarities of Malaysia's public holidays legislation, even in the case of national public holidays declarations, the Malaysian states of Sabah and Sarawak must officially declare these national public holidays separately.
For its part, the Malaysian State of Sabah announced last week (2012-03-07), that it had decided to also declare Wednesday, April 11, 2012, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming installation of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah (Malaysia's King).
