The Kangar Municipal Council (MPK) has decided to postpone the reopening of night and daily markets throughout the state to a later date. According to a statement issued by MPK last night, the postponement was made as part of efforts to ensure that the reopening of the businesses could be carried out in full compliance with the standard operating procedures (SOPs) issued by the National Security Council (MKN).
The Raja of Perlis Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Putra Jamalulail has announced the cancellation of his 77th birthday celebration on July 17.
The Perlis government, via a statement on the official website of the State Secretary’s Office, said the cancellation took into account the proliferation of Covid-19 and the effort of the government to tackle and overcome it.
The statement also said his Majesty had ordered that the allocation for the celebration should be used for purposes which would be more beneficial to the people of Perlis.
The Perlis government has allowed food traders in the state to operate from home and along the roadside during the movement control order (MCO) in the upcoming fasting month, as an alternative to not holding the Ramadan bazaar this year. Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man said traders, however, must strictly adhere to the instructions set under the MCO, which is to sell only packaged or take-away food.
