KUCHING, May 9: The upcoming 15th General Election (GE15) for Sarawak is not just a matter of individuals or parties; it is about being united in demanding what rightfully belongs to Sarawak, said Deputy Premier Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian.
According to Dr Sim, it will involve a lot of financial allocations, including autonomy power, and Sarawakians must remain united.
“I hope Sarawakians will display the same spirit (as the one shown when fighting the Covid-19 pandemic) during the general election,” he said.
Dr Sim said this to reporters after the lighting up ceremony of Wesak Day decorations at the White Cat statue at Jalan Padungan here today.
Dr Sim, who is also Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) president, said that protecting Sarawak and demanding the power and money back requires more than just talking and that there need to be enough numbers (in Parliament).
He also said the objective is simple, Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) by itself, with all the parliamentary seats in Sarawak, can’t govern Malaysia.
“We still need to form some coalition and see whoever can offer Sarawak the best and Malaysia a stable government.” — DayakDaily
