Johor gets a holiday on Nov 27 too


JOHOR BARU: Johor Ruler Sultan Ibrahim Ibni Almarhum Sultan Iskandar has decreed that the state will have a public holiday on Sunday (Nov 27).

This means it will be a long weekend for Johor as Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had earlier announced a national public holiday on Monday (Nov 28).

“The (Sunday) holiday is given following the success of the Johor Darul Ta’zim (JDT) football club in advancing to the Malaysia Cup final," Johor State Secretary Tan Sri Dr Azmi Rohani said in a statement on Friday (Nov 25).

“Following the announcement (by Anwar), the state government upholds the decree from His Majesty to declare this Sunday as a holiday."

The final will be held at the National Stadium in Bukit Jalil on Saturday (Nov 26).

Azmi added that the holiday would make it easier for JDT supporters to watch the final and give them time to plan and organise their journey so they would not have to rush.

He said the declaration of Sunday as a holiday is in accordance with Sections 8 and 9 of the Holidays Act 1951 (Act 369).

Johor observes the weekend on Fridays and Saturdays.
