Malaysian Chief Secretary to the Government of Malaysia, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, had announced that Monday, April 24, 2017, had been declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia "to celebrate the installation of Sultan Muhammad V as the 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong".
Five years ago (2012-02-24), under similar circumstances, the same Malaysian Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan, had announced that Wednesday, April 11, 2012, would be a one-off non-working national public holiday throughout Malaysia to correspond to the date when the Sultan of Kedah, Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah, was to be installed as the Yang di-Pertuan Agong (King of Malaysia).
Technically, the above announcement that Monday, April 24, 2017, had been declared as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia to celebrate the new King's installation, is limited to Peninsula Malaysia and the Federal Territory of Labuan, and the Malaysian States of Sabah and Sarawak will need to make separate announcements, as they did 5 years ago (2012-03-07 and 2012-03-16).
