The Chief Minister's Office of the government of Malaysia's State of Sarawak has announced that Sarawak would observe post-election public holidays next Thursday and Friday, May 17 and 18, 2018, instead of May 10 and 11, 2018, as announced yesterday by the Malaysian Federal Government.

This morning's announcement that would observe post-election public holidays next Thursday and Friday, May 17 and 18, 2018, instead of May 10 and 11, 2018 ("As such, the public is advised that May 10 and 11 are normal working days"), follows yesterday's announcement by the Chief Secretary to the newly elected Malaysian Government, Tan Sri Ali Hamsa, Thursday and Friday, May 10-11, 2018, would be non-working public holidays in Malaysia, and that, for states whose weekends fall on Friday and Saturday, an additional public holiday would fall on Sunday May 13 (09-May-2018). But, as usual, that announcement's text specified 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", a pronouncement that is normally a mere formality, but which, in the present case, turns out to be anything but.

The Sarawak announcement thus further amends the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Persekutuan 2018" (Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2018) and the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Negeri 2018" (State Public Holiday Schedule 2018), jointly released last summer (01-Aug-2017).
