KUALA LUMPUR: Prime Min­is­ter Datuk Seri Na­jib Ab­dul Razak last night de­clared Sept 4 as a pub­lic hol­i­day in ap­pre­ci­a­tion of the out­stand­ing achieve­ments of the Malaysian con­tin­gent in the 29th SEA Games.

“It is not easy to de­clare a hol­i­day be­cause Malaysia has too many pub­lic hol­i­days but since we have achieved an out­stand­ing re­sult in the SEA Games through the un­wa­ver­ing sup­port of the var­i­ous races and the ex­cel­lent per­for­mance of our ath­letes, on be­half of the gov­ern­ment, I de­clare Sept 4 as a pub­lic hol­i­day,” he said in his Merdeka Day speech at the Na­tional Sta­dium in Bukit Jalil af­ter the SEA Games clos­ing cer­e­mony.

Na­jib said the gov­ern­ment de­cided to award a pub­lic hol­i­day in recog­ni­tion of the sac­ri­fices made by the ath­letes to achieve the most mem­o­rable re­sult in the his­tory of the SEA Games. – Ber­nama
