KUCHING, Dec 17: Voters are reminded to adhere to the special Covid-19 standard operating procedures (SOPs) outlined for the 12th Sarawak Election (PRN12) tomorrow.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) secretary-general Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi also advised voters to go out to vote according to the time set by the Election Commission (EC) to ensure the voting process would run smoothly.

“This is to ensure for a safe voting environment for all, at a time when we are still facing the challenge of the Covid-19 pandemic.


“Not only voters, but I also hope all candidates, including GPS candidates will also comply with all the SOPs that have been outlined,” he said.

Nanta, who is also Kapit MP noted that the two-week campaign period has shown successful cooperation from all parties in complying with all the SOPs that have been set.

He said GPS often emphasises the importance for all parties, including candidates, to always abide by the rules and SOPs.

“Although PRN12 is something that everyone is looking forward to, but the safety and health of the people remains our priority.

“We have managed to weather the campaign period with strict SOPs due to the outbreak of Covid-19. So I hope, this compliance will continue tomorrow,” he added.

The 12th Sarawak Election will see a total of 349 candidates from 10 political parties as well as independent candidates contesting in all 82 State seats.

In Kapit, GPS is betting on three candidates, namely Jefferson Jamit Unyat for the Bukit Goram constituency, Wilson Nyabong Ijang (Pelagus) and a new face, Lidam Anak Assan who will contest in the Katibas state constituency. — DayakDaily
