A spokesperson for the government of Malaysia's State of Perak, has denied rumours that the Perak government had declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Perak on Friday, May 6, 2016, pointing-out that Wednesday, May 6, 2015, had been declared a one-off non-working Malaysian state public holiday, but only as a one-off occurrence ("It was announced last year but only to commemorate the Perak Sultan's enthronement").

The event that the spokesperson for the government of Malaysia's State of Perak was referring to was last year's (30-Apr-2015), when the Chief Minister of the government of Malaysia's State of Perak, Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Dr Zambry Abdul Kadir, announced that the Perak government had declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Perak on Wednesday, May 6, 2015, on account of the upcoming coronation of Sultan Nazrin Shah as the 35th Sultan of Perak.

But, following the one-off declaration of Wednesday, May 6, 2015, as a one-off non-working state public holiday in Malaysia, the list of 2016 public holidays in Malaysia, as released by the Government of Malaysia, later that year (19-Oct-2015), moved the annual Perak state public holiday to November, as the spokesperson for the government of Malaysia's State of Perak pointed-out this morning ("Following the announcement, the Dewan Negara Perak had a meeting to move the date of the public holiday to Nov 27, the birth date of Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah").
