Kota Kinabalu: The Kota Kinabalu Chinese Chamber of Commerce and Industries (KKCCCI) has been allowed to resume the registration of marriages.

Its President Datuk Michael Lui said it received an official letter from the National Registration Department (JPN) appointing the Chamber’s Deputy Secretary-General Frederick Chang Ket Shung as Assistant Registrar of Marriage. 

He said KKCCCI would officially kick off the marriage registration on May 20 (520 means I Love You). 

Couples who intend to register for marriage on May 20 (Monday) are urged to contact KKCCCI Secretariat (088-255470; Fax: 088-225299; email: [email protected]).

“Since the marriage registration was terminated by the authorities on Dec 19, 2022, we actively fought hard through various feasible channels. 

“As a result, we have been reinstated by the authorities. The termination of marriage registration brought a lot of inconvenience to the Chinese community,” he said.

Michael said KKCCCI had been playing such role since 1982. 

“Over the past 40 years (1982-2022), we had consistently registered 17,135 new couples every Saturday or specific time selected by the couples. 

“We did not even stop during the Covid-19 pandemic and movement control order in the past three years. We completed the task by adhering to JPN’s SOP and registered more than 600 new couples during Covid-19,” he said.
