Terengganu is expected to shift to Phase Four of the National Recovery Plan by the end of October at the latest, Menteri Besar Ahmad Samsuri Mokhtar said today.
He said this was based on the indicators and current developments such as the percentage of full vaccinations for the adult population which to date has reached 82.7% while those who have received a first dose have surpassed 90%.
“God willing, there will be a special meeting of the pandemic special committee at the federal level tomorrow to be chaired by Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
“This matter (shifting to Phase Four) will also be scrutinised during the meeting. Based on the current situation, we expect to be able to move to the next phase at the latest in a month,” he told reporters after checking on the National Covid-19 Immunisation Programme at SMK Pengkalan Berangan in Marang.
A total of 1,470 Form One to Form Three students from four secondary schools in the Marang district received their first dose during the programme in preparation for the reopening of schools next month.
Meanwhile, Samsuri who is also PAS vice-president said Terengganu would host the 67th PAS annual general assembly scheduled from Nov 6 to 7.
All plans and preparations are underway to ensure the assembly including the selection of the top party posts goes smoothly, he added.
“The assembly cannot be postponed anymore and we concur with the directive of the Registrar of Societies that it be held before Dec 31,” he said.
