KUCHING, May 18: Sarawak may follow the Federal government but she will not bow down when it comes to matters pertaining to its rights.
Premier of Sarawak Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg said there won’t be any (political) spins when the State’s rights are involved.
“When we try to get (back) our rights, it does not mean we do not follow the national (authorities).
“We do follow the national (authorities) but (if it comes down to) our rights, (we will fight for) our rights.
“Everybody says that there is no economy of scale but when it comes to your rights, you have to protect your rights. No spins about it,” he said when officiating a dinner with the media event at Pullman Hotel earlier tonight.
He also thanked the people of Sarawak for their trust in Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) which led to its landslide victory in the last State election by grabbing 76 out of 82 seats.
At the same time, Deputy Minister in the Premier’s Department (Corporate Affairs and UKAS) Datuk Abdullah Saidol said a media convention will be held in the near future.
The convention will invite media practitioners from various platforms to come up with a constructive draft on media culture and ethics which may become an important component in the Digital Economy initiative.
Amongst those present were Deputy Premiers Datuk Amar Douglas Uggah Embas and Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian. — DayakDaily
