KUALA LUMPUR, July 23 — A majority of MPs have received two doses of the Covid-19 vaccine says Dewan Rakyat Speaker Datuk Azhar Azizan Harun.

He said another 35 MPs had received at least one dose of the vaccine, while four had not been vaccinated for certain reasons, however they were still allowed to attend the Dewan Rakyat sittings.

“All MPs are allowed to come to the Parliament even if they are not vaccinated, however, we advise those who are not vaccinated to be careful, because we cannot stop them from performing their duties under the Federal Constitution,” he said during a virtual press conference detailing the preparations for the Special Parliament sitting which begins Monday.

Azhar said he had previously held discussions with National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme (PICK) Coordinating Minister Khairy Jamaluddin, who agreed that all parliamentary staff should be vaccinated, and so far, 90 per cent of them had received both shots.

Commenting on the preparations for the sitting, Azhar said the Parliament had set certain ‘house rules’, among which was to ensure that every individual who came to Parliament, including contractors, ministry staff and ministerial escort officers had been vaccinated.

“If they are not vaccinated, we will not allow them to enter,” he said.

As a security measure, Azhar said every individual including MPs, officers on duty, parliamentary staff, media personnel, contractors’ workers, drivers and bodyguards would have to undergo a swab test.

A total of 1,008 people underwent screening tests two days ago, while all MPs were screened today.

A special session of the Dewan Rakyat will be held for five days beginning July 26, while the Dewan Negara will convene for three days beginning August 3.

Meanwhile, Azhar in a statement said that only 72 media personnel would be allowed to be present at the Parliament building, adding that this was part of measures to reduce the risk of Covid-19 transmission.

In addition, he said Parliament had also prepared hybrid press conference platform facilities and exclusive interactive interview sessions with MPs through the Zoom application.

“These virtual press conferences and interviews will provide an opportunity for all media personnel who are unable to be physically present at the Parliament building to participate in all press conferences or interviews that may be held by any MP during the special session,” he said.

Azhar said Parliament would provide a special room that housed two computers and audio-visual equipment with dedicated Zoom links, and members of the media could contact the press secretary to the Dewan Rakyat Speaker or the Corporate Communications Division of Parliament if they wished to hold interactive sessions with MPs.

Meanwhile, he said all important photos during the conference would be taken by officially appointed photographers from the Parliament and the Malaysian Information Department.

“I hope this new media management approach can help reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection, especially among media practitioners,” he said. — Bernama

    There’s some debate among the stability industry experts with regard to the efficacy of VPNs.
    Since most web-sites now help safe HTTPS connections, Considerably
    of your on the net experience is by now encrypted.
    Secure DNS products like Cloudflare one.1.1.one and Bitdefender’s Yonly exist specifically due to the fact some sense VPNs are overkill.

    Continue to, a VPN covers the information not presently safeguarded by
    HTTPS, areas a significant buffer among you plus the people managing Web infrastructure, and can make on the net monitoring
    tougher.

    Surfshark provides a cheaper substitute for UK viewers. The
    dedicated application is practical and simple to operate throughout all of your equipment (did we point out You need to use unrestricted equipment?).

    There is not any problem connecting to servers in other nations
    to obtain the displays you desire. 

    There are actually many hundreds of VPN suppliers out there and
    each and every one of these promises to be the best.
    Zeroing in on a person VPN wasn’t effortless.
    It took us considerable research and a huge selection of checks
    to at last get there at this conclusion. Obviously, eventually, ExpressVPN emerged as the most obvious
    selection.

    Not one of the expert services With this record are best, and there will surely
    be moments when it will not make sense to work with a VPN.
    But it’s a worthwhile Software to own in your personal stability toolbox.

    There are plenty of alternatives to choose from and lots of streaming providers that it’s

    It doesn’t aid Considerably to obtain unrestricted info If you’re able to’t use it for streaming or torrenting. 

    Any time you use Kodi with the Firestick, it is possible

    Nonetheless, you continue to have trouble with geo-blocked shows, Which explains why you should use a VPN with Kodi to hide your genuine ISP and unlock
    the shows you’d like. 

    Based what we’ve study in preliminary evaluations, we expect
    It is a lot more than able to competing with older VPN expert services like PureVPN and NordVPN,
    that have existed because 2007 and 2008, respectively.

    that lets you keep linked to nearby gadgets, including
    printers, FTP, when the VPN is ON. It is enabled by default and I like to recommend retaining it like that
