SEREMBAN: The launch of the Negri Sembilan-level Muakafat Nasional scheduled for Saturday (March 7) has been deferred.

The organisers of the event in a statement on Thursday (March 5) said the decision was made following feedback from the state Umno and PAS leadership and advice from the Health Ministry.

Although the reason for the postponement was not stated, it is believed to be due to Covid-19 concerns.

PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang and Umno deputy president Datuk Seri Mohamad Hasan were supposed to be the main speakers at the event.

Others include former minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom, former deputy international trade and industry minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Maslan and former deputy agriculture and agro-based industry minister Datuk Seri Tajuddin Abdul Rahman.

A carnival was scheduled to be held during the event at Dataran D'Cattleya in Senawang near here.
