The Human Resources Ministry of the Malaysian Federal Government, has announced that the one-off public holiday in Malaysia, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, on account of the coronation of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, "also applies as a paid holiday for employees in the private sector".

Last month (2019-06-28), the Chief Secretary to the Malaysian Federal Government, Datuk Seri Ismail Bakar, announced that Tuesday, July 30, 2019, had been declared a one-off additional non-working public holiday in Malaysia, on account of the coronation of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

That announcement was shortly followed (2019-07-05) by one from the Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, announcing that Sarawak would also observe a one-off non-working public holiday, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019.

The date of the public holiday in Malaysia for the official birthday of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V has been in the news many times last year (2018-09-06, 2017-08-22, 2017-07-13 and 2017-04-29).
