The Malaysian State of Johor has declared Sunday, November 22, 2015, as a one-off state non-working public holiday in the Malaysian State of Johor, to commemorate the birthday of the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim.
Earlier this year (2015-03-19), the Malaysian State of Johor had announced that it was in the process of removing the November 22, annual state non-working public holiday, commemorating the birthday of the Sultan of Johor, Sultan Ibrahim, to replace it by a new, initially one-off but later made annual, non-working state public holiday in Malaysia's state of Johor on March 23, to commemorate the yearly anniversary of the coronation of the sultan of Johor (2015-03-15 and 2015-01-06).
Today's declaration of Sunday, November 22, 2015, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Johor, is in addition to the previously-announced (2014-08-11) list of official national and state non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2015.
But, this is not meant as a return of November 22 as an annual state public holiday in Malaysia's State of Johor, as the recently announced annual official Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2016 and State Public Holiday Schedule 2016 jointly issued by Malaysia's Cabinet's and the Constitution and Government Relations Department of the Prime Minister's Office, clearly shows the November 22 state public holiday as gone (2015-10-19).
Note that the declaration of a state public holiday in Malaysia's State of Johor on Sunday, November 22, 2015, is not futile, as for the past 2 years (2013-11-23), Fridays are part of the weekend, and Sundays are regular working days, in Malaysia's State of Johor as well as the Malaysian states of Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu.
