KUCHING, Sept 18: Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) has named social activist and businessman Sim Min Leong as the party’s candidate for the Mas Gading parliamentary seat in the coming 15th General Election (GE15).
PBK president Voon Lee Shan said Sim is a person of humble beginnings who understands the plights faced by the natives in Mas Gading.
“Sim Min Leong was chosen to contest in Mas Gading based on his track record of helping many people overcome their financial difficulties over the past 10 years.
“During the Covid-19 pandemic, many people in Mas Gading sought the help of Sim Min Leong to overcome their food and financial needs.
“He even helped them to repair a broken bridge in a village with money of his own,” said Voon in a statement today.
He said most natives in Mas Gading are very poor, and the government has not been able to uplift their standard of living in the past six decades. — DayakDaily
