Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan

LAWAS, Sept 29: Sarawak politics stresses on stability to focus on bringing development rather than dogmatic politics that cause disunity, says Deputy Premier Datuk Amar Awang Tengah Ali Hasan.

He was commenting on a reporter’s query on his opinion in foreseeing the ‘political culture’ of the upcoming Jepak by-election.

“We do not want dogmatic politics that will ultimately lead to disunity. Our politics emphasises stability; with that stability, we can focus on the direction of efforts that bring development.

“What’s important is how we can mobilise all energy to improve the well-being of livelihood, and we have a direction through Post Covid-19 Development Strategy (PCDS) 2030 to make this State a high-income state based on three pillars, namely economic prosperity, social inclusivity and environmental sustainability,” he said after attending a function in Lawas today.

Awang Tengah, who is also Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) deputy president, further said Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) had determined its candidate for the Jepak by-election as announced by Premier-cum-GPS chairman Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

“I hope the voters there would give full support to ensure huge victory for us to continue development efforts in the constituency and Sarawak in general,” he added. — DayakDaily
