November 18 and 19 will be public holidays, with no toll charges, to allow Malaysians to travel home to vote in GE15!
GE15 : No Toll + Public Holidays On November 18, 19!
On Monday, 14 November 2022, the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Ismail Sabri, announced that November 18 and 19 will be public holidays, to allow Malaysians to travel home to vote in the 15th General Election (GE15).
Saturday, November 19, was declared a public holiday as some private companies operate on Saturdays, and this would free their employees to vote in the general election.
In addition, private vehicles travelling on highways will not have to pay toll charges on those two days – November 18 and 19, 2022.
The free toll will apply to highways provided by 30 concessionaires, and start from 12:01 AM on November 18, and end on 11:59 PM on November 19.
I know many have been waiting for the announcement and I hereby announce a public holiday for November 18 and 19.
We want to make sure Malaysians can exercise their rights as clearly stipulated in the Federal Constitution. No one can prevent a citizen from exercising their right to vote
The state governments of Negeri Sembilan, Penang and Selangor had earlier declared November 18 as a public holiday. So this declaration by the Prime Minister ensures that all Malaysians will have sufficient time to travel back to vote.
