Thunderstorms expected in several areas in Sarawak on Nomination Day (Dec 6)

KUCHING: The Malaysian Meteorological Department (MetMalaysia) forecasts thunderstorms in several areas in Sarawak on the nomination day of the 12th state election on Monday (Dec 6).

MetMalaysia, via its website on Sunday (Dec 5), said heavy rain was expected in one of two places in the interior of the state in the morning while thunderstorms were expected in one or two areas in the evening.

Apart from that, rain was also expected in one or two areas in the interior in the evening.

A total of 82 nomination centres would be open statewide from 9am on Monday.

The Election Commission (EC) has set Dec 14 for early voting and Dec 18 for polling.

In the meantime, the EC, on its official website on Sunday, suggested certain times for voters to go out and cast their ballots so as to better control the number of people heading to the polling centres at any one time.

"The suggested times are from 7.30am to 9.30am; 9.30am to 11.30am; 11.30am to 1.30pm; 1.30pm to 3.30pm; and 3.30pm to 5pm," the EC said.

The EC said voters could check their information through the mySPR Semak application or at the Semakan Daftar Pemilih SPR portal. - Bernama
