KUCHING, April 17: A one-day State Legislative Assembly (DUN) Sitting is now tentatively scheduled for May 11, said DUN deputy speaker Datuk Gerawat Gala.

The new date would be the third time that the sitting has been rescheduled after it was initially scheduled to be held on April 14, and later postponed to April 16. The last date was on April 21.

On April 10, Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg had told a press conference at Wisma Bapa Malaysia that the state must hold its DUN sitting on May 21 to comply with the State Constitution which stipulates that it must hold DUN sitting every six months. The last DUN sitting was held Nov 4-13, 2019.

Gerawat added that due to the uncertainty of the Movement Control Order (MCO) which is expected to be lifted on April 28, the sitting on May 11 would still be held for just a day.

The Mulu lawmaker stated that the agenda of the sitting had yet to be finalised. —DayakDaily
