KUCHING, April 30: Democratic Action Party (DAP) elected representative are reminded not to make any ‘unfulfilled rhetoric and irresponsible promises’ in the Sarawak Legislative Assembly (DUN).
Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) Youth secretary-general Milton Foo said that such rhetoric and promises were uttered by state DAP chief Chong Chieng Jen in DUN last year about returning 20 per cent oil royalty and 50 per cent tax revenue collected to Sarawak as soon as Pakatan Harapan (PH) takes over Putrajaya.
“DUN is not a coffee shop for them to make (sic) all kinds of baloney like what they did during the GE14 campaign. DUN is a place with dignity for elected representatives to speak for the people of Sarawak but not for their political rhetoric,” said Foo in a statement.
On the decorum in DUN, he said : “I’m so disappointed that YB Chong as a senior member of the House and also a Deputy Minister of the federal government, his provocative act to ridicule other members in the House is destroying the dignity and image of the supreme legislative body in Sarawak.
“If a member of the House acts like an barbarian, it will make us Sarawakians a laughing stock in the international community.
“Chong is slapping his own face when he said in DUN this morning (April 30) that the speaker in order to show his impartiality must not be affiliated with any political party, as he tends to forget that the Deputy Speaker of Parliament is from DAP, Nga Kor Ming,” Foo pointed out. — DayakDaily
