KUCHING: Matters concerning the 12th state election did not arise during a meeting of state ministers held here on Monday.

A reliable source, when contacted on Tuesday (Oct 12), said the meeting chaired by Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg did not touch on the election; however, the meeting was mainly to discuss the 2022 State Budget with the State Cabinet members.

It was also attended by Deputy Chief Ministers Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas and Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

Later that night, Abang Johari also met with other members of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) at the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) headquarters at 8.30pm to brief them on budget-related matters.

Both meetings were closed-door and attended by most of the State Cabinet members, along with those from GPS.

Meanwhile, Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) vice president Datuk Henry Harry Jinep who was among those present during the meeting at PBB headquarters said: “GPS’ meeting last night (Oct 11) was on the special State Budget session today (Oct 12).”

Today (Oct 12), Abang Johari also shared with Sarawakian lawmakers on the approved State Budget for 2022 at the Borneo Convention Centre Kuching (BCCK).
