LUNDU: The Barisan Na­sional di­rec­tor of op­er­a­tions for Tan­jong Datu, Dato Sri Wan Ju­naidi Tuanku Jaa­far says that all polling districts will be ready for the by- elec­tion to­mor­row re­gard­less of the weather.

Speak­ing at the com­mu­nity hall here yes­ter­day, he urged all vot­ers to come down and cast their votes even if it rained heav­ily on that day.

He said he was aware of the oc­ca­sional heavy rains here, es­pe­cially in the morn­ing th­ese past few days.

He was, how­ever, op­ti­mistic that flash flood would not oc­cur here dur­ing the by- elec­tion al­though all flood-prone ar­eas had been iden­ti­fied.

He also said lo­cal com­mu­nity lead­ers to­gether with their charges had been asked to be alert if floods hap­pen in their re­spec­tive ar­eas.

“We are ready for any­thing. What is im­por­tant is a good turnout of vot­ers dur­ing polling,” he added.

Still on polling, Wan Ju­naidi said wheel­chairs would be pro­vided for those with mo­bil­ity is­sue to cast their votes, com­plete with as­sis­tants (to push the wheel­chairs).

He also called on vot­ers to sup­port BN can­di­date Datin Pat­inggi Datuk Amar Jami­lah Anu, who has been cho­sen by Barisan Na­sional ( BN) to stand in the by- elec­tion.
