KUCHING, July 3 ― Sarawak United People’s Party (SUPP) Women chief Kho Teck Wan has urged the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to grant a special extension to the Sarawak State Legislative Assembly (DUN) so that the 12th state election can be held at a later date.

She said the special extension should enable the current state government to continue functioning until the Covid-19 situation in Sarawak is under control.

“Not just politicians but all strata of our society in Sarawak should focus on saving lives, getting vaccinated and reviving the economy instead of an election,” she said in a statement yesterday.

Kho suggested the next state election ought to be delayed due to the prevailing high number of Covid-19 cases in the state, not to mention that the Delta variant had been detected.

She feared that election campaign without strict compliant with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) could lead to the emergence of a new pandemic cluster.

“We are now into the third week of Phase 2 of the National Recovery Plan. Most businesses are allowed to operate with only 50 per cent workforce capacity.

“Let’s allow the market a period of recovery before the election is held,” she said.

Kho also called upon the Election Commission (EC) to come up with a more stringent SOP for the next state election.

She felt that lower number of daily Covid-19 cases should not be the reason not to tighten the SOP for an election.

At present, she said only 58 per cent of Sarawak’s eligible populations had been fully vaccinated.

“We should focus our efforts on achieving at least 80 per cent population being fully vaccinated. Vaccines may not prevent one from getting infected with Covid-19, however, statistics show that vaccines reduce severe cases and death rate due to the virus. It also prevents the collapse of our healthcare system,” she pointed out.

Given the circumstances, Kho hoped that the King will grant special extension to the DUN Sarawak so that the state can focus on more pressing matters like saving lives and economic recovery. ― Borneo Post

  1. Now, it’s sort of a essential evil for a lot of.
    Inventions and innovations are the engines that poiwer
    the economy, but the majority of innovators andd inventors
    lack the funds essential to maximize the marketplace rospective of their merchandise.
    To remain at market place speed, R&D models involving painful gestation periods are begginning
    to yield to models developed to refain pafe with fast external developments in science and technology.

    So how can government bring in and improved harness external innovation? When the bust
    hit a few years later, quite a feww firms disappeared, but the city fared much better than some for the reason that the fledgling health care IT industry was capable to survive
    and retain the area’s tewch scene alive, Buffington mentioned.

    Theese startups represent every single important business and are positioned in extra than 90 countries.
    Just as the Bay Area was capable to creeate off that momentum – with bbig
    firms in essence giving birth to thhe subsequent generation of
    productive tech startups – several of the so-referred too as “secondary markets”will be capable to do anything equivalent, Buffington predicts.
    However, as more FL-based fuds like Inflexion succeed, we’ll hold onto our fair
    share, and the region will share the rewards.
    “This will accelerate since of the pandemic,” stated Case, who has
    invested in corporations in much more than 80
    cities.

  2. Great blog! Do you have any hints for aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any ideas? Cheers!
