The Chief Secretary to the newly elected Malaysian Government, Tan Sri Ali Hamsa, has announced that Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, 2018, would be non-working public holidays in Malaysia (for states whose weekends fall on Friday and Saturday, the additional public holiday will fall on Sunday May 13).
Earlier this week (12-Apr-2018), 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 won today's general elections.
That announcement, made by State PH chairman, Ahmad Faizal Azumu, followed the 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 the upcoming general elections (11-Apr-2018), thus amending the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2018" (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2018), released last summer (01-Aug-2017), and was followed (08-May-2018) by an announcement by he caretaker prime minister of Malaysia, Najib Abdul Razak, 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 today's general election.
As usual, the announcement's text specifies that "For Sabah and Sarawak, the state government shall have to declare the additional public holidays for both dates according to the respective General Public Relations Ordinance".
