Agong's Birthday

Agong's Birthday is a public holiday in Malaysia, and is observed on the first Monday in the month of June each year.

Agong's Birthday marks the birthday of the Yang di-Pertuan Agong, the constitutional monarch and head of state of Malaysia that was established in 1957.

Nine rulers of the Malay states formed the Conference of Rulers, and the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is elected by and from the Conference of Rulers. The office de facto rotated between them with a 5-year term. In the event of a vacancy of the office (e.g., death, resignation), a new Yang di-Pertuan Agong will be elected with a new 5-year term.

On Jan 31, 2019, Al-Sultan Abdullah was sworn in and signed his oath of office as Malaysia's new King to replace Sultan Muhammad V who stepped down on Jan 6 in the same year. Agong's Birthday was also changed from June 6 to June 8, and it is also agreed that from 2021, Agong's Birthday will be moved to the first Monday in the month of June each year throughout his ruling.

The following is the list of Agong's Birthday from 2021 to 2025.
