KUCHING, Apr 10: A one-day State Legislative Assembly (DUN) sitting has been rescheduled to April 21 (Tuesday), revealed Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

Initially, it was scheduled for April 14, then postponed to April 16.

“We have to comply with our constitution. We must have it within six months (after the last DUN Sitting),” Abang Johari told a news conference after the State Cabinet meeting at Wisma Bapa Malaysia here today.

The last DUN Sitting was held Nov 4-13, 2019.

The normal eight-day sitting could not be held due to the Movement Control Order (MCO) as a result of Covid-19 pandemic.

Meanwhile, the Chief Minister said Sarawak will abide with the MCO extended period until April 28 as announced by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin today.

“We will abide with the MCO as announced by the Prime Minister so that we look after our safety and so that we contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.

The MCO was first imposed on March 18 for two weeks until March 31. It was later extended for another two weeks until April 14. This will be the second time the MCO is extended due to the Covid-19 pandemic. —DayakDaily
