MUKAH: Early voting for the Balingian by-election, involving 133 registered enforcement personnel, went off without a hitch.
“We expect almost everyone eligible for early voting to do so today. The Election Commission records show 133 eligible voters, although according to our own latest records, one has retired.
“We hope he returns to cast his vote and not waste it,” Sarawak Deputy Police Commissioner Dep-uty Comm Datuk Law Hong Soon said.
Early voting took place at the Mukah police headquarters’ multi-purpose hall after the state-level Malaysian Police Day celebrations, which was held there.
DCP Law said the campaigning for the by-election had been “peaceful”, adding: “There have been no police reports made by either side. This is a very smooth by-election. I want to say thank you to the people for showing such high level of cooperation.”
Law said 54 permits for political rallies had been issued so far.
