After our new Agong was announced, many Malaysians wondered if we would get a public holiday on the oath-taking ceremony which falls on 31 January 2019 (Thursday). Well, we hate to break to you but we don’t have a public holiday on the aforementioned date. 🙁

However, this is not the case for Pahang because their citizens will be enjoying a day off tomorrow, reported The Star. Nice!

In accordance with our 16th Yang Di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri’ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah Ibni Sultan Ahmad Shah’s oath-taking ceremony tomorrow (31st January), the Pahang government has declared a state holiday for its citizens.

FYI, the new Agong will be accompanied by his consort Tengku Ampuan Pahang Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah binti Almarhum Sultan Iskandar. 

After chairing the state exco meeting in Kuantan, Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Wan Rosdy Wan Ismail was quoted as saying,

“The last time a similar event was celebrated was four decades ago, in conjunction with Paduka Ayahanda Sultan Ahmad Shah’s proclamation as the seventh Yang di-Pertuan Agong.”

The Menteri Besar explained that the holiday was granted in order to express the people’s pride and joy for their Ruler, Sultan Abdullah.

On the other hand, along with new Agong, the Deputy Agong Sultan Nazrin will also be taking his oath and they will sign “the instrument of office” tomorrow.

On that note, we wish both Sultans all the best for their oath taking ceremony and we hope that they will serve the country well.
