A statement issued by the Malaysian Prime Minister's Department has announced that the Malaysian annual non-working public holiday for the official birthday of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V, would be moved, once again, this time to September 9, 2017.

Recall that earlier this year (2017-04-29), the Government of Malaysia had announced that, following the installation of Sultan Muhammad V as the 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, for the next 5 years, the annual non-working public holiday of Malaysia celebrating the birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, would be moved from its traditional date in June to a new date in July.
