Sarawak Considering to Offer Subsidies For Sarawakians to Return & Vote in GE15
The announcement of the upcoming general election was very sudden and immediate which might have left some Malaysians who are overseas or away from their home towns scrambling to find ways to return home to vote.
For Sarawakians, it appears that it will be made easier as the Sarawak government is currently considering giving subsidies to Sarawakians to return and vote in the GE15.,
According to Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg, the matter would be discussed in detail with other leaders.
“All I know is about the dissolution (of parliament), but we do not know when the polling date is. Nonetheless, we will consider it. I cannot give a specific answer. Let us discuss among the leaders first on how to provide assistance to anak-anak (young people) to come home and vote,” he said.
He was asked about this at a town hall session with Sarawakians studying in the peninsula during the Lan Berambeh Anak Sarawak programme held at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre yesterday.
Over 4,000 Sarawakians, mainly students in universities and other institutions of learning in the Peninsula, attended the Lan Berambeh held at the Malaysia International Trade & Exhibition Centre (MITEC).
What do you think of this? Do you think that other states should consider doing the same?
