CMO: What press conference on DUN dissolution?


KUCHING: There will be no press conference tomorrow (Oct 22) relating to the dissolution of the Sarawak state assembly.

The Chief Minister’s Office (CMO) in a statement today (Oct 21) dismissed media reports by several news portals that a special press conference would be called for the purpose.

“Reference is made to the report by The Star and other news portals on the purported announcement by the chief minister on the dissolution of the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) on Friday.

“This office wishes to clarify that no such meeting is scheduled to happen for now or tomorrow as reported,” the statement read.

Earlier, several national portals reported that Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg was expected to call a special press conference on the dissolution of the DUN.

This came after intense speculation that the state legislature will be dissolved by the end of the month, to pave the way for a state election next month.

Due to the Emergency Order (EO), Sarawak is unable to hold its state polls although its DUN had expired in June. The state’s EO is scheduled to be lifted on Feb 2, 2022.
