Malaysia Mulls Extended End of Ramadan Public Holidays

The Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, has announced that the Government of Malaysia would consider declaring Friday, July 8, 2016, as a one-off bridge non-working public holiday in Malaysian states where Friday is a regular working day.

The aforementioned Friday, July 8, 2016, as a one-off (special) bridge non-working public holiday in Malaysian states where Friday is a regular working day, would thus link the 2-day annual Hari Raya Aidilfitri (End of Ramadan) Malaysian public holidays of July 6 and 7, with the following weekend, but would be limited to the public sector.

Traditionally, only 3 of Malaysia's states and territories observed a Friday/Saturday weekend; Kedah, Kelantan, and Terengganu. But these were joined by Johor, three years ago (23-Nov-2013).

Note that, earlier this month (15-Jun-2016), the Government of Malaysia's State of Penang already announced that Friday, July 8, 2016, would be a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Penang, due to the coincidence of the annual Pengisytiharaan Tapak Warisan Dunia Pulau Pinang state public holiday and of the second day of the upcoming Malaysian public holidays for Hari Raya Puasa (End of Ramadan), on July 7, 2016.
