Now, it looks like the problem has been solved.

According to the Malay Mail Online, the federal government has just announced that polling day for GE14 will officially be a public holiday nationwide to enable Malaysians to go out to the polls and vote. 

The Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) reportedly stated that they would be invoking the Holidays Act 1951 to make polling day an ad hoc national holiday, saying,

“Pursuant to the Election Commission’s announcement that the 14th general election will be on May 9, 2018, the government has set the day to be an additional public holiday for the entire country.”

“This is to let Malaysians fulfill their duties as voters.”

Well, there you have it! It’s officially a holiday on polling day! We hope this will help ease everyone’s plans for the big day. Meanwhile, be sure you know your polling district before going out to cast your vote. Remember, every vote counts!
