SERIAN: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) will be stepping up its preparations for the 15th general election (GE15), says coalition secretary-general Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi (pic).

He said that GPS assemblymen are busy on the ground to ensure the party remained relevant.

"It has not been a year after the state election, GPS is always working and all our assemblymen are going to the ground.

"GPS will always ensure the people are looked after as we promised, we do not need to wait for the general election to approach before swinging into action,” he said after visiting the Keluarga Malaysia Cheap Sale (JMKM) in Kampung Bunan here on Sunday (Sept 18).

This comes after Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob said on Saturday (Sept 17) that the date of dissolution of Parliament would be announced soon to give way for GE15

In this regard, the Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister said his ministry will continue to hold JMKM programmes so that more people benefit from the sales, especially those living the rural and interior areas.

He said as of Sept 15, the Sarawak Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Ministry had implemented JMKM at 118 locations in 65 state constituencies.

"The achievement is a continuation from the success of the ministry in Sarawak in implementing the Keluarga Malaysia Sales Programme in 196 locations, (involving) in all 31 parliamentary constituencies with a record of of 267,978 visitors and sales reaching RM5.917 million from December 2021 to August this year," he said.

JMKM offers daily necessities at 20 per cent cheaper than the local market price, thus easing the burden of people's cost of living. - Bernama
