channel for the latest updates.KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 24 — The Ministry of Health (MOH) today announced that it is prohibiting all activities, gatherings or social meetings related to political campaigning for next month’s Melaka polls.Health Minister Khairy Jamaluddin cited the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988, also known as Act 342, for the prohibition.
He said this stance is also in line with the prohibited activities listed under Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan (NRP).“As Melaka is in phase 4, social gatherings are allowed according to@MKNJPMSOPs. However, as can be seen by recent gatherings, political parties (including mine) cannot observe SOPs. In the interest of public health, all political gatherings will now not be allowed in Melaka,” he said in a series of tweets this afternoon.
Khairy noted that the Election Commission has said it will be announcing the SOPs, but added that those would only apply when official election campaign begins — which is on November 8, as it has been designated as Nomination Day for the Melaka state election. headtopics.com
“In order to reduce the spread of Covid-19 all activities involving campaigning such as large gatherings or social activities have been banned. This includes any launch events for the party’s campaign drive or political gatherings,” he said in a statement later.
“These restrictions will come into effect from October 25 until November 27, 2021,” he added.Khairy said based on provisions under subsection 10(1) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases (Declaration of Infected Local Areas) of the NRP made under subsection 11(2) of the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342), no gatherings were allowed.
Under subsection 10(1), no one is allowed to organise any gatherings at any premises or area of infection be it for religious, weddings, sports, recreation, social or cultural purposes regardless of the recovery phase.“If found to be in breach of these rules the individual or organiser or organisation can be compounded or be charged in Court under the Prevention and Control of Disease Act 1988 (Act 342).
“All parties are reminded to adhere to these SOPs and instructions to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and reduce the number of clusters,” Khairy said.Earlier today, Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman tweeted a TikTok video that showed Datuk Seri Najib Razak entering a large hall festooned with Barisan Nasional and Umno banners and packed with women dressed in red tudung and blue blouses, suggesting a political party gathering in an enclosed area. headtopics.com

Suhakam: ‘Balancing act’ needed to address anti-vax discrimination'Restrictions should not disable their basic human rights.' Unless you have a medical condition that prevents you from taking the vaccine, your choice to wilfully endanger yourself and the community around you shouldn't be given any protection. What balancing act? Anti-vaxxers and the unvaccinated have already won their game against Khairy Jamaluddin. They know Khairy Jamaluddin can do nothing to them. “Even though there are reasonable restrictions, these should not disable the basic human rights of the unvaccinated'. As long as no human rights violation!
