The caretaker prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Abdul Razak, has announced that Monday and Tuesday, May 14-15, 2018, would be declared as one-off non-working public holidays in Malaysia, should the BN (Barisan Nasional) party win tomorrow's general election.

Earlier this week (2018-04-12), Malaysia's Perak Pakatan Harapan coalition had announced that it would declare Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, 2018, as non-working public holidays in Malaysia, if they win tomorrow's general elections.

The announcement, made by State PH chairman, Ahmad Faizal Azumu, followed last month's announcement by Malaysia's Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak, that the government of Malaysia had decided to declare Wednesday, May 9, 2018, as a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia on account of tomorrow's general elections (2018-04-11), thus amending the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2018" (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2018), released last summer (2017-08-01).
