MUDA Sarawak chairman urges youth to shape Jepak’s destiny in upcoming by-election

KUCHING, Nov 1: The Jepak by-election may not completely alter the political landscape of Sarawak, but a victory by a party other than Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) in the State constituency will have significant implications for Sarawak politics, says Malaysian United Democratic Alliance (MUDA) Sarawak chairman Jeffery Ngui.

According to Ngui in a statement issued today, youth and new voters account for 66 per cent of the total electorate in Jepak, and the younger generation holds the key to Jepak’s future.

“The upcoming Jepak by-election scheduled for Nov 4 is drawing near. As we approach the voting day, all the youth of Jepak are reminded of the importance of your role in shaping the future of the Jepak and Bintulu areas.

“In the previous Sarawak State Election (PRN12), the political landscape in Sarawak witnessed a significant victory by GPS, securing 76 out of 82 contested State Legislative Assembly (DUN) seats.

“Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) won three seats, and an independent candidate (formerly from PSB) claimed one seat. Meanwhile, the opposition was represented by Pakatan Harapan (PH-Democratic Action Party (DAP)) with only two seats,” he said.

He said Sarawak needs the people’s voices to maintain fairness and balance in governance, encompassing all segments of society regardless of ethnicity and religion.

“Youth of Jepak, this is your moment! Your vote is the power and key to shaping a new era in our region. It will also serve as a guiding light for the upcoming Sarawak State Election (PRN13).

“I urge all the youth of Jepak to return to the polling stations and participate in the democratic process. Let’s join together to make our voices heard and bring about the changes we desire.

“Let’s go home to Jepak, now it’s your time to decide!” Ngui added. — DayakDaily
