SRI AMAN, Nov 11: Not everyone dressed in party colours may be supporters, says Deputy Minister of Infrastructure and Port Development Datuk Majang Renggi.
Supporters might be wearing the white shirt of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and its component parties, but we don’t know who they will actually vote for, he said.
“Voters must be genuine to our candidate Dato Sri Doris Sophia Brodi, in P202 Sri Aman and not hide like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
“To be a developed state by 2030, GPS must win in Sri Aman as we need a strong Federal government so that we have the trust of foreign investors to invest in our country,” he added.
Majang reiterated that a strong economy in the country benefits Sarawak as it creates employment and better income.
“I don’t know whether you all are affiliated with GPS component parties- Parti Bumiputra Bersatu, Sarawak United People Party, Parti Rakyat Sarawak and People Progressive Party), or not.
“But it is good that you come because you want to see the government candidate and the people from the government like me and others,” he added.
Majang, who is also Parti Rakyat Sarawak (PRS) deputy president, said this at a meet-the-people and community leaders session at the longhouse of KK Simon Pilit, Ulu Undop, today.
In thanking those present, he explained that after the country was hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic at the end of 2019, the country’s economy is in a bad state.
He claimed that the scenario has deterred foreign investors from coming as the Federal government is not stable.
“We have had three prime ministers in the space of four years. This scenario has not reflected well among foreign investors. They are half-hearted in investing in Malaysia.
“However, despite that, we have a strong GPS government who have the mandate given by the people in the 2021 State Election and have won 76 out of 82 state assembly seats.
“So, despite a weaker Federal government, we are strong in Sarawak government, but we still need the Federal government to bring investors,” he further.
Majang added that the Sarawak government can only achieve developed status by 2030 if the country has strong investors. — DayakDaily
