The Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Tan Sri Adenan Satem, has finally announced that his government had declared July 22 as a new annual non-working state public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak to commemorate Sarawak's independence from British colonization.

Today's announcement ("Today, I would like to declare that July 22 will be observed as a public holiday for Sarawak" and "The decision was made to recognise and acknowledge the sacrifice and contributions of our ancestors who had fought for Sarawak's independence from the British") follows last February's announcement (13-Feb-2016), in which the Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Patinggi Tan Sri Adenan Satem, announced that Sarawak State had requested from the Malaysian federal government that July 22 be declared a state non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak.

A month later (20-Mar-2016), Sarawak's Chief Minister announced that his government was "set to make July 22 a public holiday[in Sarawak]in recognition of those who helped fight for independence from British rule in 1963".

Chief Minister Adenan did not specifically state that, this new annual non-working state public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak on July 22, would start in 2016, but local media are reporting that they have "learned that July 22 would be observed as a public holiday beginning this year".
