KUCHING, June 25: Batu Kitang assemblyman Lo Khere Chiang says he is ready and prepared for the coming state election.
He said his Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) team has been working tirelessly since his win in the 2016 state election.
“If you ask me whether I am prepared and ready for the coming state election, I will humbly say that I’m ready, prepared and raring to go.
“You see and I’m telling you that we have been going around since day one after the 2016 state election to bring development and to help the people in the area, and the people on the ground know that,” Lo told reporters here today.
He has earlier visited a house which had been completely repaired at Jalan Cinle at Kota Padawan.
Lo, who is Padawan Municipal Council (MPP) chairman, added his team has been facilitating development like projects under the Rural Transformation Programme (RTP) from the state government under Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS), as well as house repairs.
“GPS provides allocations to help the people, so we need to work harder to help the people.
“So given such assistance from the state government, I see no reason for the people not to support the locally based political parties in the coming state election.”
Lo won his seat, which was created in 2015 following a redelineation exercise by the Election Commission, in the 2016 state election, securing 6,466 votes.
He won the seat by a 1,840 majority, defeating four other other candidates — Abdul Aziz Isa from Democratic Action Party (DAP) who garnered 4,626 votes, Voon Shiak Ni from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) with 883 votes, and independent candidates Sulaiman Bujang and Othman Bojeng, who respectively garnered 61 and 54 votes. — DayakDaily
