Malaysia's Chief Secretary to the Government, Datuk Seri Mohd Zuki Ali, has announced that the public holiday for the birthday of Malaysia's Agong had been moved to Monday, June 8, 2020, and would henceforth be observed on the first Monday of June, for the duration of the reign of the current Agong, Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah.

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

The aforementioned change to the 2020 date of the public holiday for the birthday of Malaysia's Agong, thus amends 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).
