KUCHING, Dec 19: Sarawak politics is able to remain stable and will not be plagued by any crisis that will cause instability in the State government, says Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) deputy youth chief Fazzrudin Abdul Rahman.

According to Fazzrudin, this allows the State government to remain focused and committed to fight for the people by introducing various new initiatives to ensure the people’s welfare and well-being.

“While the victory obtained (in the 12th Sarawak Election) can be described as huge with a majority of 11,209 votes, I will ensure that the best service will continue to be given to the people of Tupong.

“Of course, among my plans for the next five years is to ensure continued development in the area, the welfare of the people and also give emphasis to the education of the locals.

“At the same time, like in the previous term, I will continue my efforts to develop the local economy in Tupong as well as produce excellent human capital among the people,” he said in a statement today.

Fazzrudin was commenting on the landslide win by the Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) coalition in the 12th State Election yesterday.

GPS won a total of 76 seats, while Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) won four seats, and Democratic Action Party (DAP) won two seats.

In the same statement, the Tupong incumbent also noted voters in Sarawak had given a mandate to GPS under the leadership of Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said this shows that the people of Sarawak have put their faith in this coalition and want to see the State governed by a people-centric, credible leadership, with integrity.

“This is also a reflection of the voice of the people who reject the extreme politics championed by the opposition parties which continue to prey on religious and racial sentiments.

“Amid the country’s political turmoil, Sarawak must remain resilient in facing the challenges of the future to ensure continuous development in the State,” he added. — DayakDaily
