MUKAH, April 26: The political stability of component parties within Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) is very important to ensure that Sarawak’s development agenda can be continued and bring prosperity to the people of this State.

According to a report by Sarawak Public Communications Unit (Ukas), Deputy Premier of Sarawak Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan said the stability of Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) enables the welfare and interests of the people of Sarawak to continue to be protected.

He said this includes being the backbone to the society of this State which consists of various racial and religious backgrounds.

“Political stability is so important so that we can continue the development agenda.

“So that we will be able to continue to be a protector of the interests of our community, the Bumiputera community and be the backbone of the government for the community,” he said when officiating the PBB N57 Tellian and N58 Balingian Branches Tri-Annual Delegates Meeting on Saturday (April 23).

Awang Tengah, who is also PBB vice president, said the sacrifices of PBB members gave way to young elected representatives to strengthen the party and making it an anchor to GPS.

“This spirit enables us to achieve success and this spirit enables our party to be an anchor in the coalition. Previously, (it was in) Barisan Nasional, now GPS,” he added.

He also advised PBB members to reject divisive elements within the party to ensure it remained relevant and remained strong.

Earlier, Balingian assemblyman and PBB Balingian Branch chief Abdul Yakub Arbi in his speech hoped that the PBB N57 Tellian and N58 Balingian branches for the 2022-2025 session would be stronger and more energetic to continue to implement the main agenda of the party and the GPS government.

At the meeting, Abdul Yakub retained his position as the PBB Balingian Branch chief after winning uncontested.

Meanwhile, Tellian assemblyman Royston Valentine won uncontested as the PBB Tellian Branch chief. — DayakDaily
