Miri Parliament­ary Service Centre’s mobile counter to cover more areas


MIRI: Miri Parliament­ary Service Centre’s mobile service counter will be expanded to cover more areas to enable constituen­ts to get informatio­n on various assistance and programmes offered by the Pakatan Harapan (PH) government.

According to Miri MP Dr Michael Teo, it is hoped that the services offered at the counter will bring people closer to the PH government, thus helping them to understand the policies implemente­d by the federal government.

“The federal government has launched the ‘Peka B40’ website for the people to apply for welfare assistance, medical benefits for the B40 group as well as get RM40 rebate on their electricit­y bills,” he said at the launch of the service counter in Senadin here yesterday.

The service counter which opens from 4pm to 6pm every Friday received encouragin­g response from the people there as well as from the surroundin­g areas. It was visited by over 100 people who wanted to know more about the policies and benefits offered by the federal government.

Dr Teo said at the moment, the mobile counter activities will focus on Senadin area but will soon be expanded to other housing areas as well.

Among the services available are registrati­on for E-Kasih, MySalam scheme, Peka 40 scheme, Welfare Department assistance as well as voter registrati­on.

Members of the public who wish to obtain more informatio­n on the counter can visit Miri Parliament­ary Facebook page.
