The Chief Secretary to the Malaysian Federal Government, Datuk Seri Ismail Bakar, has 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, on that date.

Recall that, late last month (2019-05-31), Malaysia's Pahang State Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail, had announced that effective in 2019, July 30 would be a new annual non-working public holiday in the Malaysian State of Pahang "in conjunction with the birthday of the Sultan of Pahang, Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah, who earlier this year ascended to become Agong of Malaysia".

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