The Information Department of the Prime Minister of Malaysia has issued a communique denying the news that had circulated that Monday, March 2, 2020, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia on account of the appointment of the eighth prime minister ("Please stop spreading such fake news immediately").
If the aforementioned news that Monday, March 2, 2020, had been declared a one-off non-working public holiday in Malaysia, had been true, it would have amended the annual official Federal Public Holidays Schedule 2020 and State Public Holiday Schedule 2020, containing the list of official national non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2020 as well as the state-specific regional non-working public holidays in Malaysia for the calendar year 2020, as released by Malaysia's Cabinet's and the Constitution and Government Relations Department of the Prime Minister's Office, jointly last summer (2019-07-08).
