Malaysia Maintains Agong Public Holiday On June 7

Despite the announcement by the Istana Negara Comptroller of the Royal Household, Datuk Ahmad Fadil Shamsuddin, that all events in conjunction with the official birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, scheduled to take place in June, would be postponed, Istana Negara clearly spelled out that the associated public holiday would be maintained ("it has been decided that June 7 will still be declared as a public holiday in conjunction with the Yang di-Pertuan Agong's birthday").

Recall that, last year's announcement by Malaysia's Chief Secretary to the Government, Datuk Seri Mohd Zuki Ali (2020-06-03 and 2020-03-04), 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, adding yet another twist to the timeline of the Agong's birthday public holiday date in Malaysia (2018-09-06, 2017-08-22, 2017-07-13 and 2017-04-29).
