The king’s official birthday has been moved again.
Yang di-Pertuan Agong XV Sultan Muhammad V’s official birthday celebration was originally scheduled on 29th July, but it has changed to 9th September, this year.
“The Government has agreed to move the birthday celebration of His Highness Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Muhammad V for the year 2017 from Saturday, 29th July 2017 to Saturday, 9th September 2017,” reads the statement issued by the Prime Minister’s Department yesterday (Thursday, 13th July).
This marks the 2nd time this year where Agong’s birthday celebration date has been shifted. The first changed took place in April when the King’s birthday was moved from the first Saturday of June to the last Saturday of July.
