KUALA LUMPUR: The Government has decided to declare an additional public holiday this year in view of Hari Raya overlapping with National Day on Aug 31.
Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan said the date of the additional holiday would be subject to the setting of the Hari Raya dates by the Conference of Rulers.
If the first day of Hari Raya fell on Aug 30 and the second day coincided with National Day, then Sept 1 would be declared as the additional public holiday, he said in a statement yesterday.
If the first day of Hari Raya falls on Aug 31 and coincides with National Day, then Sept 2 will be declared as the additional public holiday.
Mohd Sidek said the additional public holiday for peninsular Malaysia and the Federal Territory of Labuan was gazetted under Section 8 of the Holidays Act 1951.
“The state governments of Sabah and Sarawak are in the process of gazetting the additional public holiday under Section 9 of the Holidays Ordinance of Sabah and Section 5 of the Public Holidays Ordinance of Sarawak, respectively,” he said.
Mohd Sidek said it was hoped that the announcement would avoid confusion and facilitate early preparations to celebrate Hari Raya and National Day. — Bernama
