Highways to be toll-free and public holidays declared from November 18 to 19 for Malaysia’s GE15 – PM

Highways to be toll-free and public holidays declared from November 18 to 19 for Malaysia’s GE15 – PM

Prime minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob has announced that there would be no toll charges from 12.01am on November 18 until 11.59pm on November 19 for travellers in private vehicles (Class 1), The Star reports.

Speaking at the Cuepacs headquarters groundbreaking ceremony today, Ismail Sabri said 30 highway concessionaires have agreed to provide free tolls on their highways over the two days, which have also been designated as public holidays. “I know many have been waiting for the announcement and I hereby announce a public holiday for November 18 and 19,” he said.

The prime minister’s announcement comes a few days before Malaysia’s 15th general election (GE15) that takes place this coming Saturday (November 19, 2022). “We want to make sure Malaysians can exercise their rights as clearly stipulated in the federal constitution. No one can prevent a citizen from exercising their right to vote,” he said Ismail Sabri.

If you’re travelling by car to your hometown to vote, paying tolls is now one less thing to consider, but do remember to make sure your vehicle’s health is at its best to prevent unplanned stops. For those who are voting and have tested positive for Covid-19, you can still vote but there are guidelines that must be followed: always wear your face mask, do not use public transport and do not stop by anywhere before and after voting. Stay safe and vote wisely.

      • You still can’t even accept that BN have made so many lies to the public. Corruption and BN also made promise not to partner with PN since PN is a traitor but now PN plans to partner with BN again after GE15? BN are been fooling us again. So who cares about you and your BN as liars?

Covid lockdown always favorite from PN. When flooding season coming, BN is ignoring flood season and BN also make promises for public transport during either pandemic/endemic but in the end today, already broken promises and also what happened on LRT breakdown recently causing transport system is in the mess.” Someone said

      In addition, someone said “PAS under PN got RM2 billion corruption/scandals for flood mitigation project to an Umno-linked company.

        Complaining about PH is all excuses. How about solving problems on corruption, also for LCS scandal first. Promise doesn’t matter. All parties also have lack on some promises but to get rid more corruption is high priority

            So you go ahead vote for BN/PN, if you think PH is not as good as BN and PN. But BN/PN will bring more corruption due to greed of BN/PN. Everyday stress due to higher cost of living suffer from BN/PN. Their feedback will also not going to vote those corruptions from BN/PN” Someone said
