Covid-19 issues, Undi18 to be raised in Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday (Sept 21)

KUALA LUMPUR: The nationwide vaccination programme, face masks and the rollout of Undi18 are among the issues that will be raised in the Dewan Rakyat on Tuesday (Sept 21) when lawmakers continue debates on the Royal Address.

Datuk Zakaria Mohd Edris (PN-Libaran) wants Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Datuk Seri Dr Adham Baba to reveal the amount of money spent on the nationwide vaccination programme.

Zakaria is asking for the details of the expenditure based on each vaccination centre set up for the purpose.

Additionally, Cha Kee Chin (PH-Rasah) wants to know if the government has any plans to lower the ceiling price for Covid-19 self-test kits which are currently priced at RM19.90 per kit.

He is raising the issue with Domestic Trade and Consumer Affairs Minister Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi.

Cha noted that a gradual price reduction would enable the self-test kits to be affordable to more people, especially the B40 group.

Meanwhile, Gobind Singh Deo (PH-Puchong) intends to ask Prime Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob the status on the implementation of Undi18.

Gobind wants to also know what are the steps to be taken to ensure the implementation of Undi18.

On a separate matter, Datuk Wira Dr Mohd Hatta Md Ramli (PH-Lumut) wants Foreign Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein to state whether the country will recognise Afghanistan under the Taliban.

The current Parliamentary meeting will last for 17 days until Oct 12.
