ARAU, April 26 (Bernama) -- All hotels and homestay in Perlis have been fully booked for the 2014 SUKMA that will be hosted by Perlis despite the games clashing with the World Cup in Brazil.
Perlis Menteri Besar Azlan Man said since the SUKMA had its own following, fans and supporters, it would not be affected although held in the midst of the World Cup and the Bukit Gelugor by-election.
Azlan said the state government would do everything in its capacity to ensure the games, held from May 24 to June 4, would not loose its 'glamour' to the World Cup or affected by the by-election.
"Many, including those in the media have been questioning our preparedness, especially the completion of venues and facilities. But I can assure that everything is in place for the games.
"We will be fully ready to receive all the 15 participating contingents on May 24," he told reporters after opening the International Competition in FOSS Multimedia (ICOM 2014) at Universiti Malaysia Perlis (UniMAP) in Pauh Putra, near here Saturday.....
