PETALING JAYA: The Energy, Green Technology and Water Ministry guarantees there will be no blackouts during GE14.

Its minister Datuk Seri Dr Maximus Ongkili said all necessary preparations have been made by Tenaga National Bhd (TNB) to ensure there will be no power disruptions throughout the election process starting from Nomination Day to polling day.

"TNB staff will be on duty throughout the period. They have also made available 189 portable generators worth around RM6.1mil for all the polling and counting centres in the country as back-up," he said in a statement on Tuesday (May 8).

He also said Sabah Electricy Sdn Bhd (SESB) had taken similar precautions to ensure a smooth election in Sabah.

"About 27 generators have been deployed in the state and Labuan as back-up.

"Portable and emergency lights are also available at all polling and counting centres," he said.

The public is urged to contact TNB or SESB on Facebook or call 15454 for feedback or complaints.
