KUCHING, Dec 10: Sam Laya, the new Gabungan Parti Sarawak (GPS) candidate standing in N81 Ba’Kelalan, has promised he would deliver for the constituency and its people should he be elected after Dec 18 polling day.
He said only with strong cooperation from local communities in Ba’kelalan can he wrestle back the seat from incumbent Baru Bian who is a candidate from Parti Sarawak Bersatu (PSB) in this election.
As part of GPS component party Progressive Democratic Party (PDP) which adpots fairness, Sam said there is no need for him to discredit Baru for what the latter had not done for the constituency in the past.
Baru’s track record should be crystal clear to the people, he stressed.
Rather, Sam urged the people to vote for GPS instead for future development.
“I am very optimistic that with resounding support from our voters in Ba’kelalan this time around, I will render all my strength to improve the livelihood of the people here,” he said during his ongoing political campaign at Kampung Tang Itong near Lawas here today.
He added that improving the business and education sectors would also be part of his blueprint for Ba’kelalan if he were to win this election.
Other than Baru who is also Selangau MP, the lawyer will also be facing Marten Labo of Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR), Peter Asut of Parti Bumi Kenyalang (PBK) and former PKR Wanita chief Agnes Padan as an independent.
Ba’kelalan seat will be one of the most-watched battles in this election as the voters will soon choose a representative among the five contenders, who are all from the Lun Bawang community. — DayakDaily
