KUCHING, Dec 14: Sarawak Democratic Action Party’s (DAP) action of lodging a complaint with the Election Commission of Malaysia (SPR) regarding banners with the word ‘cheat’ in Mandarin (‘pian’) shows that they dare not face the word, says Tan Kai.
The operations director of Sarawak United Peoples’ Party (SUPP) N14 Batu Kawah for candidate Dato Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian said two of their campaign banners containing the word ‘pian’ had been taken down following DAP’s complaint.
He said in a statement today, however, promises made to the people were forgotten when Pakatan Harapan (PH) which DAP is a part of, became the federal government.
Tan also mentioned several of DAP’s pledges that were not fulfilled, such as to give every Sarawakian an allowance of RM2,000 annually, to return 20 per cent oil royalty and 50 per cent tax collected to Sarawak, to return autonomy in health and education matters to Sarawak, and to recognise the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC). — Dayakdaily
