The caretaker Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Penang, Lim Guan Eng, has also declared Monday, May 6, 2013, the day after the upcoming general elections as a one-off non-working state public holiday.

Early last month (2013-04-10), Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had called on the Malaysian states in which Sunday is not a weekly non-working day, to declare Sunday, May 5, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming general elections.

Subsequently, the Malaysian States of Kelantan (2013-04-18), Kedah (2013-04-24), and Terengganu (2013-04-17 and 2013-04-26), did indeed declare Sunday, May 5, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming general elections.

This was followed, yesterday (2013-05-03), by the Malaysian State of Selangor which, for its part, declared the day after the upcoming general elections, Monday, May 6, 2013, as a one-off non-working state public holiday, so that "people will use the holiday wisely to go back to vote in their respective constituencies and do not have to rush to come back to work the next day".
