Putrajaya has declared 24 April 2017 [Monday] as a public holiday to mark the installation of Sultan Muhammad V from Kelantan as Malaysia’s 15th Yang di-Pertuan Agong.

Sultan Muhammad V was elected as the country’s King when the Conference of Rulers met last October. He succeeds Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah of Kedah, the only state monarch to reign twice as Agong.

Chief Secretary to the Government Tan Sri Ali Hamsa said that the announcement was made under the Public Holidays Act 1951. The Act applies to the states in the peninsula as well as the federal territory of Labuan in Borneo Malaysia.

He added that Sabah and Sarawak have been informed to ratify the public holiday under their respective state laws.

The installation ceremony will be held at the Balairung Seri of the Istana Negara here on the morning of April 24.
