Perlis poised to move to PPN phase Three soon, says MB


KANGAR — Perlis will be moving to Phase Three of the National Recovery Plan (NRP) soon, says Mentri Besar Datuk Seri Azlan Man.

He said this follows the level of vaccination in the state, which has achieved 36.1%.

“We still need another 3.9% vaccination rate among the adult population to enable Perlis to move to NRP’s Phase Three,” he said in a Facebook post on Monday (July 19).

Azlan hoped the people would be patient and pray for the best for the state until the announcement of the Federal Government.

In this regard, he said at a virtual special National Security Council (NCS) meeting chaired by Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, several important decisions on NRP had been made, and the proposals were expected to be adopted by states in Phase Two.

Perlis is among eight states, which have moved to Phase Two of the NRP so far, and the other states are Perak, Pahang, Kelantan, Terengganu, Penang, Sabah and Sarawak.
