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.
