KUALA LUMPUR (Bernama): The Election Commission (EC) will present standard operating procedures (SOP) for the upcoming Melaka state election at the Covid-19 Pandemic Management Special Committee meeting chaired by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob, on Friday (Oct 22).
Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin (pic) said the Health Ministry would also provide its views on the matter during the meeting.
He said the SOPs to be proposed by the EC would take into account its experience in handling the Sabah state election last year.
"We will make sure what happened in Sabah will not recur... and in my view, during the Sabah state election we did not have any vaccinations (for Covid-19) and we accepted the fact that during that time there was no Covid-19 transmission related to the Delta variant.
"The Health Ministry will comment tomorrow because the election SOP will be finalised tomorrow," he said at a press conference on Thursday (Oct 21). - Bernama
