Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi

KUCHING, Nov 20: Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) candidate for P215 Kapit parliamentary seat Datuk Seri Alexander Nanta Linggi has claimed victory in the 15th General Election (GE15).

Nanta polled 16,522 votes against 4,120 from Pangkas Unggang of Pakatan Harapan (PH) and 1,357 from Robert Saweng of Parti Bansa Dayak Sarawak (PBDS). The latter also lost his deposit.

Confident in winning the seat which he had occupied for five terms since 1999, Nanta once again expressed his thanks to the constituents for voting him and ensuring GPS a resounding victory in Kapit.

“Yes of course I am very happy and satisfied for this win and the people has given me my sixth term as Kapit parliamentarian.

“I wish to thank all the voters for giving GPS the mandate again and this time by a higher majority of 12,402 votes,” he said, adding that the overall election process was a success. — DayakDaily
