Secara Rawak

KUCHING: The gazettement of the Premier title to address the Chief Minister will be probably in March, said Minister of Youth, Sports and Entrepreneur Development Datuk Seri Abdul Karim Rahman Hamzah.

He said since the bill was passed recently during the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) sitting, the state government has decided to gazette it as soon as possible.

“I think it will be very, very soon. I foresee it to be in March,” he said to reporters after attending the PASC 1st Inter Club Swimming Challenge Trophy 2022 at Pandelela Rinong Aquatic Centre here, on Sunday.

Karim declined to speculate on the actual date when pressed if it would be on March 1.

“Well, I wouldn’t want to confirm or deny but then it’s going to be March. It may or may not be March 1 but I foresee it’s going to be in March,” he emphasised.

He pointed out that once it’s gazetted, the chief minister would be addressed as Right Honourable Premier of Sarawak.

“For his deputies, they will be Deputy Premier of Sarawak, in Malay YAB Premier Sarawak, YB Timbalan Premier Sarawak and the Assistant Ministers will be called Deputy Ministers,” he added.
