KUCHING, Sept 29: Despite Pakatan Harapan and its ally parties failing to capture Sabah, DAP still received strong support in many seats it contested.
Democratic Action Party (DAP) Pasar Maong Branch Chairman Bernard Chin was quoting Sarawak DAP Sarawak chief Chong Chieng Jen who said this at the annual general meeting held concurrently for both DAP Pasar Maong Branch and DAP Stapok Branch at DAP Pasar Maong Branch Office on Sunday (Sept 27,2020).
“Quoting from YB Chong Chieng Jen’s insightful speech, although the results from Sabah’s general election was unexpected and disappointing, however, despite the darkness, we see that in Sabah, DAP still get majority of votes in the seats that our candidates were contesting for.
“And it is because our party has strong discipline and principle that gives confidence to the people. Although our enemies might seem strong and united, but there are fractions inside that are fighting against each other. Which acts as a reminder to fellow DAP members to stay strong and united in the midst of ‘war’,” said Chin in a press statement today.
For Sarawak State Election, Chin said there will be hope for DAP if the party were to be committed to its cause.
“For DAP leaders, when we dictate terms, the terms is based on how the policies should be carried out.
“If we want to be an influential party, we need to win the areas at Stapok and Pasar Maong, although this is a strong responsibility, this is what’s worth to fight for,” said Chin.
Echoing Pending assembly woman Violet Yong, Chin said DAP fights for “the rights, interest for the people, state and country” where the aim is to build a nation is multiracial and multicultural.
“This is the party that fight for all races, we will not tolerate discriminations. Although the battle involves sacrifices of our time and effort, but I believe through DAP, we can build a better nation. We will fight until we win the battle.”
Meanwhile, he also called for more young people and new blood to join the party. —DayakDaily
