KUCHING, Dec 2: The appointment of Dato Sri Fadillah Yusof as one of Malaysia’s deputy prime ministers is a recognition of Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) and the Borneo bloc which consists of Sarawak and Sabah.

When stating this, Fadillah said his new position is a big responsibility that needs to be borne with integrity, sincerity and honesty for the sake of political, economic and national prosperity.

“This position is not something to be proud of but it is the trust of the people and the country that should be carried out as best as possible.

“God-willing, I will carry this trust and responsibility based on the order of His Majesty, the Yang di-Pertuan Agong who wants us to give priority, high commitment and the best services to the people for the sake of a more stable and prosperous Malaysia.

“May we, regardless of race, religion and political beliefs, be able to build a stable, advanced and prosperous Malaysia based on the Federal Constitution and Rukun Negara principles,” he said in a statement today.

Meanwhile, Fadillah also thanked Sarawak Premier-cum-GPS chairman Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg and the entire party leadership, Sarawak MPs, party members and all Sarawakians for their trust in him.

Fadillah, who is also GPS chief whip, did not forget to convey his gratitude to Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim for the appointment. — DayakDaily
