The caretaker Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Selangor, Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim, has declared that Monday, May 6, 2013, would be a non-working public holiday in the State of Selangor.

Early last month (2013-04-10), the caretaker Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Penang, Lim Guan Eng, had called on the Malaysian states in which Sunday is not a weekly non-working day (Kedah, Kelantan and Terengganu), to declare Sunday, May 5, 2013, as a one-off non-working public holiday on account of the upcoming general elections.
The week after (2013-04-17), the Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Terengganu, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, announced that a one-off public holiday, on May 5, 2013, was expected to soon be declared for the State of Terengganu.
At the end of last month, the Chief Ministers of Malaysia's State of Kedah (2013-04-24) and Kelantan (2013-04-18), had also declared a one-off state public holiday, on May 5, 2013.
Then, finally (2013-04-26), the Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Terengganu, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Ahmad Said, announced that May 5, 2013, had been declared as a one-off state public holiday, in the State of Terengganu, as had recently been suggested, for the upcoming general elections.
