The Chief Minister of Malaysia's State of Sarawak, Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, has announced that Sarawak would observe a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia's State of Sarawak, on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, in conjunction with the coronation of Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.
This morning's announcement that Sarawak would observe a public holiday on Tuesday, July 30, 2019, in conjunction with the coronation of Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah as the 16th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, is in line with the recent similar announcement by the Chief Secretary to the Malaysian Federal Government, Datuk Seri Ismail Bakar (2019-06-28).
But, as usual, that announcement's text had 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, except in some extremely rare cases (2018-05-10).
The Sarawak announcement thus further amends the "Jadual Hari Kelepasan Am Negeri 2019" (State Public Holiday Schedule 2019), jointly released last summer (2018-09-01).
