9am: Pakatan Harapan candidate Joohari Ariffin outlines his development plans to the people of Sungai Bakap in a talk in Kampung Padang Lalang, Simpang Ampat, last night.

He says he is determined to ensure that the area’s public facilities are good and meet the needs of the residents through infrastructure initiatives.

These include water and traffic infrastructure projects such as the Sungai Kerian water treatment plant, the Perak-Penang water project, and the construction of a road connection in Bandar Tasek Mutiara.

In addition, the Haparan-BN candidate wants maternity ward facilities and geriatric specialist treatment to be provided at Sungai Bakap Hospital. He also hopes to make the Sungai Bakap area a centre for the production of halal microproducts.

Joohari is also determined to increase the participation of female entrepreneurs in Amanah Ikhtiar Malaysia and establish an activity centre for the elderly.

He also talks up the idea of free public tuition for SPM students and developing science, mathematics, engineering and technology (Stem), Malaysian technical and vocational training (TVET) and artificial intelligence (AI) programmes through the National Information Dissemination Centre (Nadi) and Digital Penang. - Mkini
