KUCHING, Nov 28: The quarrel among Opposition parties on the allocation of seats for the coming 12th Sarawak Election only signifies an unstable government if they are elected to power.

Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) chairman Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg said the people can see for themselves that the quarrel among the Opposition parties started even before the Election Commission (EC) announce the election date.

“If this happens, it means the (future) government will not be stable.

“I do not know the details (of the quarrel) but from the start, I already have the thought that the Opposition will face some problems including those local-based parties,” he said.

He said this to reporters after officiating the launching of the GPS election machinery at the Parti Pesaka Bumiputera Bersatu (PBB) headquarters in Jalan Bako tonight.

Abang Johari went on to urge Sarawakians to compare the track record of Opposition figures with that of GPS leaders throughout their service to the people up until now.

Asked on the GPS machinery’s preparedness to face the coming State polls, Abang Johari who is the Satok incumbent said it has been prepared for a long time.

“As we are all aware, the term of the State Legislative Assembly (DUN) expired in June 2021. And of course our machinery has been well prepared way earlier.

“Tonight’s ceremony is only for us to remind our party’s machinery that we have to gear up because the election will take place on Dec 18th,” he added. — DayakDaily
