Malaysia Rules-Out Further Extension of July 10 State Public Holidays

The Government of the Malaysian state of Kelantan, in the person of Kelantan Mentri Besar Datuk Ahmad Yakob, has announced that the Malaysian state of Kelantan had decided not to grant Sunday, July 10, 2016, as a one-off day in lieu public sector holiday in the Malaysian state of Kelantan, though all other Malaysian States, where where Friday is a non-working day, have done so.

Today's announcement that Monday, July 10, 2016, would not be a one-off public sector holiday in the Malaysian state of Kelantan ("I feel that the four-day break is already sufficient"), follows last week's announcement (01-Jul-2016 and 24-Jun-2016) by the Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Dr Ali Hamsa, that the Government of Malaysia had agreed to grant Friday, July 8, 2016, as a one-off bridge non-working public sector holiday in the Malaysian states where Friday is a regular working day, this decision itself, being followed (02-Jul-2016) by an announcements that Monday, July 10, 2016, would be a one-off public sector holiday in Johor and Terengganu, states where Friday is a non-working day, and a later announcement (04-Jul-2016) that the Malaysian state of Kedah had decided to grant Sunday, July 10, 2016, as a one-off day in lieu public sector holiday in Kedah.

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).

Recall that, in any event, the entire discussion above will be moot for Malaysia's State of Penang which, last month, announced that Friday, July 8, 2016, would be a one-off non-working state public holiday in Penang (15-Jun-2016).
