Sabah declares April 11 a public holiday
Posted on March 8, 2012, Thursday
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah has declared April 11 a public holiday in conjunction with the installation of Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah.
Chief Minister Datuk Seri Musa Aman said after chairing the weekly cabinet meeting yesterday that it was only proper for Sabah to similarly declare April 11 a public holiday to mark the occasion.
Chief Secretary to the Government, Tan Sri Mohd Sidek Hassan had last month declared that the installation day would be made a public holiday for peninsular Malaysia and the Federal Territory of Labuan.
“Sabah and Sarawak will do the necessary in accordance with their respective state laws,” Sidek said.
In another development, Musa said the allowance for Chinese community chiefs in the state would be increased from RM450 to RM650, effective last Jan 1.
The last time the allowance was raised was five years ago from RM230 to RM450. — Bernama
