Malaysian 2014 Public Holidays Announced

Malaysia's Cabinet's and the Constitution and Government Relations Department of the Prime Minister's Office have jointly issued the official Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2014 and State Public Holiday Schedule 2014.

The aforementioned Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2014 (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2014) re-confirms the 2009 Malaysian Cabinet decision to celebrate Hari Malaysia as a national public holiday (19-Oct-2009).

For its part, the aforementioned State Public Holiday Schedule 2014 also re-confirms the addition of the "Pengisytiharaan Tapak Warisan Dunia Pulau Pinang" regional public holiday in Penang (17-Jun-2010), and the modified dates for the 2 Johor State public holidays commemorating the Johor Sultan's Birthday and the previous Sultan's Hari Hol Almarhum (15-Mar-2010).

Both of the aforementioned announcements confirm last year's (03-May-2012) publication by Malaysia's governmental Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia, aka. JAKIM) of its Islamic calendar for 2014 (corresponding to 1435-1436 AH) and related annual Islamic non-working public holidays in Malaysia.

The date for the "Hari Jadi Yang di-Pertua Negeri Melaka" state public holiday seems incorrect, possibly due to a cut/paste from last year. It is also odd that no day in lieu public holiday is listed on September 1st for the "Hari Kebangsaan" public holiday which will fall on a Sunday in 2014. It is likely that an amended list of 2013 non-working public holidays will be released later, as was done last year (13-Nov-2012).

Finally, the Malaysian Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2014 (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2014) specifies the date of Thursday, October 23, 2014, as the date of the 2014 Deepavali public holiday in Malaysia, the same as the Singapore-announced date of Deepavali 2014, which we stated that we believe is possibly incorrect (09-Apr-2012). If we are right, and Thursday, October 23, 2014, as the date of the 2014 Deepavali public holiday is indeed incorrect, then it will be interesting to see if the Malaysian government will make a last-minute change announcement, as the Singapore government routinely does (09-Apr-2013, 10-Feb-2009, 27-Mar-2008, 25-Feb-2008, 11-Apr-2003, and 04-Mar-2002).
