Early polls like, says SAPP

The move to register new voters, especially those who have reached voting age in the state, has taken on a sense of urgency.
The Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) has called on those yet to register as voters to do so without any further delay, as it is anticipating an early general election.

Making the call yesterday, its assistant secretary-general, Foo Fook Ming urged Sabahans to register themselves as voters so that they can exercise their right to elect a new government.

He stressed that an early registration is crucial because it would take around three to four months for the Election Commission (SPR) to get them listed.

According to the SPR, there are around 240,000 Sabahans who have yet to register.

“Do not miss this opportunity to determine the future of the state with your precious vote. Determine your not let others determine it for you,” Foo stressed.

SAPP is assisting citizens who want to register as voters at the various SAPP party offices around the state and has also sent out its mobile kiosks to assist with the voter registration drive being conducted at district offices, post offices and SPR offices near their areas.
